 \;"In all things of nature there is someth ing of the marvelous." - Aristotle

\n

In their first exhibition at Art + Shanghai Gallery\, Chongqing-based artists Pang Yun and Li Yuming offer i ntrospective interpretations of landscape painting\, which has roots in bot h Western Romanticism and Eastern shan-shui painting. With hints o f sublime mystery and classical Chinese rational fluidity\, Pang and Li cap ture the largess and limitless horizon of their imagined landscapes in scen es of dense layered woods and evocative wonderlands. Of Woods and Wonde rlands offers insight to both the allure of nature and the artists&rsq uo\; individual perspectives.

\n

From Dante's dark wood to Frost's roa d not taken\, diverging in a yellow wood\, woods and wonderlands have a his tory of spurring within us a sense of adventure and fervent contemplation. What is it about endless forests\, vast expanses\, and the combination of s ky\, mountains\, and rivers that inspires such awe? Traversing the landscap e tradition\, Art+ Shanghai Gallery&rsquo\;s Of Woods and Wonderlands reflects upon the marvel inherent in the natural world\, and man&rsquo\ ;s intrinsic attachment to it.
