Artistic Style of his <Youth-Water> Series

Wang’s unique personal style is beginning to emerge in his

works: maturing children’s physiques with blurred facial

figures, often against a soft and slightly melancholy

background as his symbolic expression and visual symbol.

Here in this series, the artist chooses not to tell exciting

stories or ideas, nor does he resort to literature-style

rhetoric. Center at stage are youths in bare bodies, lying, or

sitting on slopes, or standing in shallow water, searching,

listening, or simply identifying. The naturalistic care-free

state of being appeals to the spectator’s heart and tends to

make the beholder oblivious of the mundane world’s daily

affairs. This kind of ease and relaxing setting stands not only

for a pleasant soul, but more for a liberated state of being,

which can represent a wishful thinking for life and

meanwhile as an understated language for experiencing
