Deeply affected by traditional Chinese culture and imagery, Yang Xun’s body of work often draws its inspiration from the world of Chinese gardens, Chinese opera as well as the iconographic patterns of moon-shaped flower paintings dating back to the Song Dynasty. Rays of light, another leitmotif of Yang’s oeuvre, shine from the heart of the compositions of the artist, unfolding in front of the viewer and blooming like fireworks imbued with a transient yet extraordinary beauty.

Yang’s Flowers series was inspired by Song dynasty flower paintings on round fans. With brilliant light and soft shadows, he uses his subjects to portray multisensory memories of attraction, hope, pain and despair. Describing Peach Mystery of Love, Yang says "The sumptuous pink peach blossom is a portrait of femininity. In the patches of light and shadow there is an air of irresistible mystery that lures the viewer into reverie."

A word from The Artist

In this series, the flowers bloom shamelessly and bring to mind the fleeting splendor of exploding fireworks. In the dramatic light that illuminates the center of flower, the stamens and pistils stand out with their imperfections. I aim to freeze the most glorious moments into an eternal instant, as if it is the last second before exquisite beauty withers and life itself bids farewell. The fleeting bloom of a flower is a reflection of the human spirit.
