Meng Yangyang neither creates nor depicts objects. Her creations are results of occasionality. This contingency is not a meaningless brief encounter. It is an individual’s vague as yet subtle feelings and thoughts on this objective world, full of melodic emotions. For Meng Yangyang, feeling is like a spring in the desert, a source of every creation. She tries to put aside the so-called true objectivity of definition, structure, and concepts, and face it with her pure feeling, hoping to find a way to understand the world through perception, confronting representational objects in non-figurative spirit. Meng Yangyang expresses her belief that feeling is the most important through projecting feelings of the representational world onto the canvas, extracting pure and noble feeling out of the objective world.

 

Meng Yangyang was born in China in 1983. She graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts with a B.A. in 2006 and a M.F.A in 2009. Currently, she lives and works in Shanghai.
