Of Woods and Wonderlands: Dual Exhibition by Pang Yun and Li Yuming

Exhibition Duration: May 8 to June 14, 2015
Participating Artists: Pang Yun and Li Yuming

Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s dual exhibition Of Woods and Wonderlands features paintings of delicate trees, dark skies, and imaginative landscapes by Chinese artists Pang Yun and Li Yuming. The natural world, with its innate order and raw strength, has long inspired the minds of men, and Of Woods and Wonderlands continues this tradition by exploring the convergence of art, nature, and reflection in the contemporary mindset.

"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." - Aristotle

In their first exhibition at Art+ Shanghai Gallery, Chongqing-based artists Pang Yun and Li Yuming offer introspective interpretations of landscape painting, which has roots in both Western Romanticism and Eastern shan-shui painting. With hints of sublime mystery and classical Chinese rational fluidity, Pang and Li capture the largess and limitless horizon of their imagined landscapes in scenes of dense layered woods and evocative wonderlands. Of Woods and Wonderlands offers insight to both the allure of nature and the artists’ individual perspectives.

From Dante's dark wood to Frost's road not taken, diverging in a yellow wood, woods and wonderlands have a history of spurring within us a sense of adventure and fervent contemplation. What is it about endless forests, vast expanses, and the combination of sky, mountains, and rivers that inspires such awe? Traversing the landscape tradition, Art+ Shanghai Gallery’s Of Woods and Wonderlands reflects upon the marvel inherent in the natural world, and man’s intrinsic attachment to it.

 

树林与仙境:庞云、李毓明双个展

展期: 2015年5月8日至6月14日
参展艺术家庞云李毓明

艺术+ 上海画廊本次举办的双个展“树林与仙境”主要呈现了艺术家庞云与李毓明的作品中优雅的树木,灰暗的天空和虚幻的风景。自然世界因其内生的秩序和原始的力量而一直激发人类的灵感,“树林与仙境”则是对这种传统的一种延续,它尝试探索将艺术、自然和思考融合于现代思维之中。

“万物自然,均有绝妙之处。”—亚里士多德

这是两位重庆籍艺术家在艺术+上海画廊举办的首次展览。根植于西方浪漫主义画派与传统中国山水画风,他们给予风景画独特的诠释。通过对茂密、错落的森林以及引人产生情感共鸣的奇境的描绘,通过画作中隐现的神秘与经典的中式流畅的画风,庞云与李毓明勾勒出了虚幻风景中大自然的慷慨赠与和一望无际的边界。“树林与仙境”既展示了自然的魅力,又呈现了艺术家的独特个人视角。

从但丁的黑暗森林到弗罗斯特的黄树林里分岔路口的那条未选之路,树林和奇境历来就能激起我们内心的冒险精神和强烈的沉思。那无尽的森林、广袤的土地、以及融合一体的天空、山丘和河流究竟为何能够激起我们的敬畏?“树林与仙境”突破了传统风景画,呈现出的是自然世界内在的奇妙以及人类对自然之美与生俱来的喜爱。
