With series titled such as Metamorphosis and Karma, Bing Yang’s paintings ask the big questions and give equally complex answers. From the primordial soup of Op. 105 to Op. 120 and beyond, Yang’s illustrations are both galactic and infinitesimal. From mountain tops to the ocean’s floor: mussels scallop the canvas of Under the Sea, while a bright undergrowth of moss brandishes Youngster in his oil painting series. Yang’s paintings are brightly alive and vigorously dynamic in their movement, scope, form, and content. Though generally taking an abstract expressionist bend, Yang’s paintings are uniquely his own: a conglomerate of his sensorial experiences around the world.
Beginning as a schoolboy learning calligraphy in Taiwan, Yang’s painting career has blossomed and morphed over the years to include various colors, shapes, planes and even a variation of styles ranging from an almost calligraphic black and white to Kandinsky-esque synaesthesia. Indeed, Yang attributes his artistic practice to a reflection—seeing himself as a conduit—of the myriad experiences he absorbs across geographic and cultural wonders; a lifetime he presents to the viewer in visual amalgamation.
Yang lives and works in New York.
