Whitestone Gallery Taipei is pleased to announce the opening of “Journey to the Dark:Yang Yongliang solo exhibition”.
Yang Yongliang uses architectural images as brushstrokes; heavy mountain rocks with enriched details draw a faithful reference to Song Dynasty’s landscape painting. Urban development gives prosperity to city life although it imprisons many lives on the other side of the coin. Similarly, centuries-old cultural tradition in China has dignified profoundness, but it is always fraught with stagnation. Ancient Chinese people painted landscape in admiration of magnificent nature; Yang’s works meanwhile lead us towards a critical re-consideration on contemporary reality.
The exhibition will also showcase Yang Yongliang’s very first work based in Virtual Reality (VR) – Eternal Landscape (2017). In this work, Yang portrayed an authentic Song Yuan mountain landscape in respect for the golden age of Chinese landscapes. We cordially invite you to come visit this precious opportunity.
