Pekin Fine Arts is pleased to host our 1st solo exhibit project with Beijing artist, Yang Dongxue.  Dong Xue works with sculptural and sound installation and watercolor drawings, focusing mainly on his perpetual struggle to express oneself honestly – and accurately – to the audience, and inevitably falling short.  Dong Xue’s practice is marked by a deep ambivalence toward art production and his role as a player in the contemporary art scene.  He sees himself as a “dedicated” and “serious” artist who is painfully aware of the futility of such dedication and seriousness.

Artist Statement:
I am often obsessed with the existential meaning of artwork creation and the act of editing one’s consciousness.
And I am torn between the mutual limitations of the existential meaning of consciousness and how one conjures up such things.
We have fabricated such meanings and adopted them as maps of our behaviours.
The images presented in this exhibition consist of records of raw materials waiting to be assigned meaning.
These images are produced subconsciously. Most of them are collected and edited instinctively.
For me, these images’ significance will diminish in the process of fabrication, and what remains are incomplete understandings and insufficient meanings.
What one sees in the art produced will be no more than traces of emotion and subconscious musings.
These artworks are proof I am labouring on behalf of my subconscious.
