02 Exhibition View of “Golden Light” Qiang Yong’s Solo Exhibition

Three decades of experience lead me to be numb today. I am running away from the mechanical and inertia thinking, avoiding single and general conclusions, and firmly and constantly seeking the real answer to convince myself about my thoughts. Linking up the thought result and the concept performed in the plastic, I am combing through my memories and expressing my thoughts with the use of the plastic, standing firmly in a state of confusion while firmly being clear. It is better to expose and criticize myself than to disentangle history, to establish an individual world value.

When creating a work, I have to refine the concept, to ponder the style, to tolerate production and to dismantle the barriers.

The rough light reflected from the unadorned world activates our paralytic nerves, and the personal texture, folding, the twisted, concave-convex, fracture, and broken surface of the works, is similar to the cerebral gyri and sulci and the uniqueness is imprinted on my mind.

It is stating the former brilliant times through the texture of overweight stainless steel and golden titanium. Even if it is radiantly shining, it will cool down over time. Leaving only the golden remaining light.
