About the artworkWang Xiao Rong uses multitude of materials and media, such as leaves, papers, ink, Chinese painting and oil pigment to create some forms of collages. She believes each material and colour has an emotional characteristic, and her artworks mainly examine states of life existence.
Xiao Rong Wang was born in Shanxi Province, China, in 1973. She attended the Xiâ€™an Academy of Arts in 1997 and then graduated from the reputed Russian Artist Studio at the China Academy of Art in 2011. Today she is a member of both the Shaaxi Artists Association and the New York Hudson Artists Association.
Wang's sense of adventure fuels her passion for experimentation in her artistic practice. Her work is composed of a multitude of materials and media. She will use objects such as leaves and papers in her paintings in addition to ink, Chinese painting and oil pigment, according to her requirements. Thereafter she will often use these materials to create collages. Each material and colour has an emotional characteristic; the leaves, for example, represent the life of the past and the birth of a new life. Wang states of her practice; 'From a macroscopic perspective, my works examine states of life existence and mourn about how life is short and time vanishes'. She allows a space in her works for the audienceâ€™s own interpretations and emotions but also suggests that the works embody romance, sincerity, amiability and nature.
Even though Xiao Rong Wang has a Western artistic technique and natural style, her ideas and creations are deeply rooted into the context of Chinese traditional culture.
