ZHI YANGHUANG

黄致阳

 

28 House • Vancouver

Description of Work

Huang Zhiyang artwork consists white marble sculpture. Eleven of these human scale 3-dimensional forms with textured undulating lines titled, Landscape: Possessing Numerous Peaks.

Artist Info

Huang Zhiyang, who was instructed in Chinese calligraphy as a child, is recognized for his large-scale oil paintings, ink washes on silk, and drawings on paper. His work has been summarized by critics as the application of traditional Chinese techniques to an American tradition of Abstract Expressionism. Frequent motifs in Huang’s work make reference to the natural world, particularly to bamboo and landscapes, though the images are not immediately recognizable. Huang also produces abstract installations, and has worked in sculptural materials like bamboo and gilded bronze. His work has also been prominent in fashion: Huang’s drawings are source of inspiration for the French fashion designer Anne Valerie Hash, and in 2011 he collaborated with the designers of ETRO to produce a line of silk scarves.

Description of Work

The op art style made by the bright line combination brings a different artistic expression to the whole block. The three-dimensional graphics seem to make people feel that the whole house is supported by a few simple modules.

Artist Info

Some great op art by Vancouver-based artist Pablo Zamudio. When he’s not painting, he’s running a shop here in Chinatown called El Kartel and organizing events. The show’s he’s had in his spaces over the years have played a major role in bringing real arts and culture to our city. If you ever visit Vancouver swing by his shop and say what up!
