In recent years Sichuan Fine Arts Institute has graduated a number of outstanding young artists－ Fan Yourong is just one of them. Parkview Green Art has the honor to witness her growth as an artist.
In terms of theme, Fan’s works mainly consist of two series: “The Girls” and “Out of the Corner of the Eye”. “The Girls”, which has continued since 2008, featuring girls in the cities, gives expression to their inner world and personalities to reveal the complexities of their sentiments underneath their seemingly peaceful look. “Out of the Corner of the Eye” features mainly landscape and objects.Fan has been referring to the landscapes and the images that we usually neglect or put into oblivion in the hope of exploring the aesthetic potential of image lying under the cover of indifference to social landscape. Her piety to pictorial qualities and detailed treatment lend to the two series a visual dimension that is fine, subtle, and highly purified. Keeping alive the concern for history and reality based on individuality and humanity that is particular to the academic school, she stresses the expression of the individual sentiment and cultural concepts, as well as the connection between the subject matter and the real life experience. we have every reason to expect from her growing mastery while depicting the sentiment in the inner world.
