WANG YUHONG – Seven Stars
‘Seven Stars’ takes after a traditional Chinese game- ‘Seven Star Puzzle’. The original shape of the 7-piece puzzle fascinated Wang Yuhong so much that she started to practise and combine different art forms on its basis. Her photorealistic still lifes that echoed Chinese cultural history have merged cubist and constructivist forms and have formed a juxtaposition of different cultures. By juxtaposing both styles, Yuhong calls for deeper thinking and discussion about tradition and modernity, past and present, and the relationship between Orient and Occident. In addition, Yuhong is interested in the resulting lines and she isolates them from the paintings in order to create sculptures like “The Rolling Blocks”.
