"Count no man happy until the end is known." (Greek maxim)

Whitestone Gallery Taipei is honored to announce the exhibition — Kingdom of Gold, Huang Yuxing’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan. This exhibition will feature 15 recent works focusing on the latest changes and different phases of his creative journey, and will be held from April 14 to May 13, 2018.

Huang Yuxing was born in 1975 in Beijing, he graduated from the Department of Mural Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2000, currently lives and works in Beijing. He uses an extinguish system of fluorescent colors to reflect his different states in life, he once said that fluorescent colors have a powerful vitality that seemed to have been condensed or highly evoked. His works are composed of either repetition of a deformed individual element, or reconstructed / integrated various elements. He constantly tries to bring up new visual experiences, however, the idea of "understanding of others" remains the fundamental theme of his creation.

In his recent works, he focuses on the inner tension between “the eternal cycles of time” and “complexity of human nature”. In the long course of human history, there have been many great civilizations that have crowned with the name of “golden kingdom”, this is also an excellent metaphor for the era in which we live. However, all the “golden kingdom” is inevitably destined to ruin and come to nothing – as the result of the fall of men.

In this regard, the image of “men” once again appeared on Huang Yuxing’s canvas and returned to our gaze. If the human body can never be free from the limit of immortality, does the individual’s choice remain significant? Could such limit of man still be a cornerstone of his existence? In the face of the bitter inquiries, “Kingdom of Gold” is like a beam of light projecting towards the gloom of quiet land, providing us the possibilities of a certain comprehension and understanding.

More Info


Born in Beijing, Huang Yuxing graduated from the Department of Mural Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2000. He was the first guest artist at the Yuz Museum Project Room in 2015. Huang Yuxing's work is not limited to the standard of a certain ideal image, but also grows naturally from within the painting. From the beginning of his career, water, whirlpools, forests, minerals, crystals, and even architecture have been consistently his favorite motifs. Although never tries to precisely represent these objects naturalistically, he has neither completely abandoned their shape in the real world. Moreover, he even attempts to reconstruct the impression of these objects. For example, when standing in front of a river, people usually tend to stare blankly without realizing it. The colors that Huang Yuxing loads onto the canvas immerse the audience in the same emptiness. But different from the Pointillism of Post-Impressionists, Huang never passively waits for the audience's eyes to mix the solid colors, but overlaps the colors and adjusts them over and over to finally reach his point of satisfaction; he intends to evoke the energy within his paintings by abiding this creative process. The modification of colors, shapes, and compositions has taken control of the artist and kept him busy. It is during this process that the painting gains for itself a life of freshness and self-sufficiency, as well as the motivation for continuous growth.
