> DESCRIPTION

Wang Qingsong is widely known for his theatrically staged and garishly colored photographs. Akin to the artist’s outlook on a rapidly changing China, his photographs are of infinite possibilities. This solo exhibition showcases Wang’s artworks from 2008-2011. In these richer, nuanced works, Wang assesses his own faith, sovereignty and purpose while inadvertently challenges our social dogma and limitations.

Under the veil of China’s immense growth is the exhaustive proliferation of individuality and ideals. In a time where division seems to champion unity, Wang seeks to find common grounds once again. While Wang does not provide the answers in his work, he raises questions in hopes that they will prompt the viewers to seek their own stance in these contradictions as the dialectics of the past and present, the traditional and the new, faith and agnosticism, are all part of what makes China what it is today: complementary shades of red.
