DESCRIPTION

  A Gathering of Heroes: A preface to 'Splendor', an exhibition featuring twn of the most established Chinese Contemporary Artists. 

  We exhibit works of ten artists; as ten in Chinese is a number standing for comprehensiveness, we hope the audience will find this comprehensive character as our ten artists convey their splendor to you. The other significance of Splendiferous is the brilliance 'contained' in each artist; each of the ten artists show their unique styles through their work, and just like the poem says 'one man, the world he lives in, one flower, the heaven it blossoms'. 

  Usually, exhibtions have a subject matter that helps to emphasize similarities among artists so that one can find the subject matter from works of those several similar artists; however this exhibition is quite the opposite, the subject matter is constituted by differences among those several artists, so that each individual artist shows his or her style and creativity. This hodgepodge layout certainly bears on the open mind of the director on YANG GALLERY. As a passionate promoter of Chinese Contemporary Art, Susanna Yang endeavours at showing the multitude and the resourcefulness of the genre.

  In fact, Chinese Contemporary Art has in recent years changed drastically, mainly, on slimming down of form of consciousness; Chinese Contemporary Art no longer flatters the West by expressing a different kind of consciousness, but instead it is going back to its proper cultural content and becoming a kind of humanistic narrative of everyday life. The abundant possibilities of everyday life cultivate the richness of Chinese Contemporary Art  and the latter displays the complex characteristics that are constantly changing under the different perspectives of the audience. 

  This exhibition tries to show such diversity, these ten artists are all exemplars, and combined together they cover almost all of the thirty years of the history of Chinese Contemporary Art. I entitle the exhibition 'Splendiferous' not only for the difference of their styles, but more importantly based on the fact that each is unique. It is not inappropriate, based on their being representatives of Chinese Contemporary Art, with that I call their collective, 'Splendor' .
