Weiyang Gao/高伟洋

b. 1993

一位来自于中国,现居于芝加哥的架上艺术家。2018年,获得波士顿大学绘画的本科学位,2021年,获得芝加哥艺术学院绘画硕士学位。他的作品在试图模糊抽象和具象的界限的同时,运用图案,空间,光与人体之间的关系去对人类信仰结构的构成进行批判。在创作过程中,他将人体简化成最基本的形态,并将这种形态反复重复,直到这种形态的个体性最终消失在由个体集合形成的宏观图案中。通过这种视觉上宏观和微观的对比来反映人类如何通过历史和文化建立分化与隔离。他试图表现被历史与文化造成的分化与隔离所压迫的的情感,同时也努力寻找可以超越历史和文化的共通。


Weiyang Gao is a Chinese artist who currently works in Chicago, US. Wei received his BFA in 2018 from Boston University and his MFA in painting and drawing in 2021 from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wei’s paintings blur the categories of figuration and abstraction. Within them, He utilizes themes of pattern, space, and light in relation to the human body to discuss and critique the constructions of systems of belief. During his creating process, he reduces the human figure into its most basic forms, then repeats the figure over and over again until the individual is lost in a collective pattern. He uses this visual language to bring his insight into the many ways people have used and abused culture and history to create barriers and divisions within the broader spectrum of humanity. Within his paintings, he addresses the feelings of being oppressed by those barriers and aims to find a place that transcends culture and history.
