of his work
Xiang (b. 1967) recently won the Silver Award in the most prestigious
9th National Fine Arts Competition sponsored by the
China Ministry of Culture and the Chinese Artists Association.
Lin Yun, Director of the Guangdong Fine Arts Academy described
Mr. Fang Xiang's art work that will give you a feeling of warmth
and tranquility. Mr.
Fang's unique technique uses ink water splashes on handmade rice
paper. The wetting
and drying process is repeated, layer upon layer, to achieve a
casual, yet softly washed background.
works are colorful, vibrant, exquisitely detailed, and unobtrusively
populated by cats, birds, and chickens, this painted world inexorably
attracts observers with its palpable serenity, stated in an editorial
in Chicago Magazine, April 1998.
