Wang’s artistic practice draws heavily on his observational tendencies. In earlier work, he depicted banal activities tied to daily life in Shanghai. Upon his arrival to the US, Wang suddenly found himself a foreigner and retreated into an introverted lifestyle as he grappled with feelings of alienation in a new environment. In this series of work, human figures are blurred and literally insecure in their occupation of physical space, reinforcing the tenuous quality of human existence. In terms of color, Wang employs multitudes of cool greys, blues, and greens in the background while utilizing hints of bright reds and oranges to suggest a false balance. This dramatic comparison of color represents Wang’s exploration of unity and the tension between falsehood and reality, action and stillness, the physical and waking world.
