Wang, who lives in Montreal, presents the poetry of daily life, at once intimate and minimalist. He offers a refined and sensitive vision of the object, providing a counterbalance to invasive overconsumption. His compositions borrow some of the pictorial strategies of the Surrealists, such as displacement and isolation. Here, the minimalist Grapes in a Glass evokes traditional Chinese flower painting, thus transcending time and space with a universal message of compassion and humility.
