Whitestone Gallery Tokyo is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Chinese artist, Huang Yuxing “The Lake of Barking Infants”. This exhibition is the first appearance of this great artist in Japan.
Born in Beijing, Huang Yuxing graduated from the Department of Mural Painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2000. 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 neither completely abandoned their shape in the real world, he even attempts to reconstruct the impression of these objects. The colors that Huang Yuxing loads onto the canvas immerse the audience in a state of emptiness. But different from the Pointillism of Post-Impressionists, Yuxing 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. 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.
We cordially invite you to come visit and experience the world of overflowing energy lurked in intense colors and compositions by Huang Yuxing.
