Opening - Yang Zun @ Art Seasons, Singapore

Art Seasons Gallery is opening on Feb 19 ‘Memory Loss,’ an exhibition of Yang Xun’s works executed between 2008-2010. The young artist paints black and white depiction of historic remains such as of Yuanmingyuan – the Imperial Gardens (seen above), also known as Gardens of Perfect Brightness, destroyed during the Second Opium War (1860). Extremelyh atmospheric, there is a sense of absence and melancholy in these works as the artist reflects in the notion of loss and changes. The images are painted in such way that they almost seem translucent, and have a real photographic effect (I actually first thoughts I was looking at old photographs!)
