Yang Hongwei-The Millennium Monument

Yang Hongwei-The Millennium Monument

As ancient tools and materials reflect the historical development of human civilization, how can we use knives and wood to guide artists? How can we evoke inner strength through forming Ying Shang (Carving) on wood? With knife skills and processes, how to respond to the living world that has been manipulated by various tools?

The technical procedures of printmaking require restraint, which makes printmaking quiet, peaceful and brings the feeling of isolation; the space between intelligence and scar has formed the source of Yang Hongwei’s creation.

Yang Hongwei has been engaged in printmaking creation for almost 20 years. After graduation, he taught at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. He has a delicate and persevering working attitude. His works reflect his mind. Each of his exhibitions demonstrates his improvement in the printmaking field. His works are not only highly appraised by his friends such as Xu Bing, A Cheng, and Li Tuo, but also widely collected by the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Art Museum of China, Today Art Museum, Sichuan Art Museum, Guangdong Art Museum, Guan Shan Yue Art Museum, Yanhuang Art Museum, US New Jersey Culture Center, UK Woodcut Foundation and other institutes of art.

Entitled Carving, the solo exhibition of Ying Shang will display the latest works created by Yang Hongwei: The Water, The Fire, The Stone and the scroll of The Millennium Monument. The carved marks of these works join the natural texture of materials and the spirit of the labor force, which are simple but full of change and slightly abstract. His works show concern and fear about the natural world, especially by his testing himself and different narrative structures that he has been devoted to recent years.
