In Search of Dao – The Latest Works of Xue Song
Xue Song is one of the most important artists of the Chinese “Pop Art” movement. His art fuses East and West, ancient and modern, as well as fine arts and popular culture. Born in Anhui, China in 1965, Xue Song grew up in an era of dramatic changes during China’s reform and opening up, with rapid social modernisation, economic transformation, the rise of materialism, and a modern art movement that challenged traditional aesthetics. This exhibition presents the enlightenment and breakthrough of Xue Song’s creative process in recent years, from narrative imagery to abstract forms of expression, and witnesses his thoughts on the laws of nature, his search for a harmonious relationship between the world and man, and his pursuit of the way of art.
