"Paint it Black"

- Ink paintings by Yang Gang

8 - 30 September 2001

The distinctive feature of Yang Gang's paintings is his powerful brushwork, which creates a strong, yet sensitively rendered image. Clearly he has been influenced by his years in Mongolia; his subject matter includes both the vastness of the grasslands and the crude, enigmatic images of ancient cave paintings. Yang Gang paints primarily with ink and watercolour; recently he has been working with oils.
