“Science has fueled my imagination and inspired my painting. I’ve seen cellular structures through microscopes and looked through telescopes to see planets and stars. In my imagination and in my paintings, these images become bigger, brighter and more colorful than what I have seen through those instruments. The imagery in my paintings suggests energy waves of radios, cell phones, televisions, and microwaves, as well as chemical responses within cellular organisms. At times, the images are in the background like a frequency of white noise. In other paintings, a solar flare-up, or an atmospheric disturbance in the forefront of the composition commands attention.”

“I have been influenced by other painters and can credit the work of Sam Francis, Morris Louis and LuibovPopova. Sam Francis attracted me with his compositional use of color busting through whiteness. Morris Louis’ large-scale paintings got my attention by the manner in which he poured and layered color onto raw and primed canvas. I feel a particular affinity with Liubov Popova’s compositions from 1916 to 1924 and have been inspired by the tension and movement in her paintings from this period. She was a member of the Russian Constructivist and Suprematist Movements that emphasized the importance of a clear composition. Often, I will start a piece by drawing the main compositional elements to scale on paper and start the painting by drawing or stencilling the large elements on the canvas.”

“The inspiration and process for my work has come from observing and incorporating found objects, paint applications, and experimenting with imprint and resist techniques through progressive layers. Working horizontally, the compositions gradually evolve with ensuing processes. Acrylic paint has been chosen because its fluid nature lends itself to thin watercolor washes. Conversely, thick and heavily textured effects have been made from the chemical solids of color contained within the paint. The paint has been utilized to the fullest, and care has been given not to waste the color solids or use them in any way that would be polluting. Evaporation has been used to form skins or semi-solid pellets over pots of color that are later placed onto the pieces.”

“Images such as these that I find from the internet, magazines, and newspapers are typical starting points for my work. My paintings reflect a contemporary attitude towards space of macro and micro space, and inner and outer space. They contain images of realms not seen by the naked eye. I paint to show that my imagination can resonate with science but is not limited by scientific proof.”

    FEATURED ARTIST: FENGZEE YANG

    Art | June 6, 2024

    "My art-making emerges as poignant expressions of ineffable yearning. Each crafted curve and enigmatic form become models of my emotions, a visual poem encapsulating the essence of my longing. Themes of "missing" reverberate through my work - whether it’s an empty hook, drawer, or cradle - all serve as metaphors for the profound gaps within the human experience. It symbolizes the absence of function, the lack of context, and the void of knowledge; it is a reminder of the uprooted aspects of our lives". Read more
