Abstract color on canvas and convincing realistic scene usually contradicts each other, while Wang Qiang reconciles them well. He captures the reality with penetrating eyes: authentic sense of being there, cool transparency, and air incredibly flowing in the painting – all present us a real and poetic world.
He refines traditional realistic painting with abstractionism and minimalism approach, and rationally constructs a modern art concept with unique personal style. Flat colors move freely in the space, presenting its profundity quietly. Powerful life finds peace in his paintings… the reality on his canvas seems more elusive than the past or the future.
On the other hand, the artist would like to take risks, choosing one scene after another that disregard public expectation. There is no exaggerated sensational gesture or hypocritical mask of immortality. They are solitary and elegant, existing with their own force.
