A Song of Water and Fire - Xue Song's Spirit of Ink and Wash
From the ashes of two fires in a single studio, a Chinese contemporary artist is born. Xue Song’s method of burnt collage can be use to depict any genre, but the images he selects and the compositions he creates are strictly his own, reflecting on him as an artist and as a person. Rather than concentrating solely on the destructive nature of fire or the sheer visual impact of Pop art, Xue Song finds balance in his work by rediscovering motifs from the classical tradition of ink and wash. In this way, Xue Song’s art sing a song of both water and fire.
