Yang Yao

""Grandmother and the grandson""
130.5cm (H) x 162.5cm (W)
Oil Painting

Professor Yang Yao was born in Changde Province of Hunan in 1941. He is now the professor of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and committee member of the Oil Painting Art Committee of Chinese Artiste's Association.

""Grandmother and the grandson"": Chinese culture is like a gigantic sponge that absorbs suitable international culture. Buddhism is localised. Marxism is localised. Even the international widespread McDonald's is localised. The work is about the grandmother and the grandson in front of the big McDonald's advertisement. The grandson is curious and doubts the western food. The grandmother, who is simple and has never met any western people, did not reject the western food. The ordinary scene of the grandmother and the grandson symbolizes both the conflict and integration of the Chinese and Western culture.

""Pure Land in Auspicious Day"": There are some women with curvaceous bodies in the wall painting of the ancient Tibetan temple. It is a traditional Chinese painting of beautiful women in the history of Tibetan painting. The artist grafted one twig on another based on it and transformed it into a painting with modern appreciation of beauty; the women walk with the deities and do not know where to go. The tinge in the painting comes from the wall of ancient Tibetan temples. It ""flutters"" in the wall paintings of profound dark winding corridors for thousands of years; and it looks abstract, free, graceful and varies in postures. When it was ""picked"" by the artist, it glows with an artistic conception of brand new modern appreciation of beauty.
