intro

Yan Heng captures his personal experiences and social ideology in his work. Yan Heng’s work is inspired by his ordinary and simple everyday life, as he combines people, used ob-jects and incidents that surround him in his life. Combining old broken electronic objects and painting in one surface, his works reflect the artist’s critical stance on man’s excessive reli-ance on objects that invade the human cogni-tive domain. The Geometric series criticize the learning by rote that prioritizes conventional delivering of knowledge regardless of individ-ual leaning ability and compulsory education which sets aside individual ability and character and functions simply for authority and social maintenance. Through combining faces that run contradictory and unrelated to each other, the artist encourages us to transcend beyond the confined realm of standardized ways of thought, to multi-dimensional world of limit-less thinking.

闫珩的画中充满全球消费社会和中国意识形态条件下的 个人经验和社会隐喻。他善于发现朴素、简单的日常情境中蕴藏的无限可能。他的图像多为具象人物、事物和外部环境的再次表达,借助已使用完的家用电器与绘画 并列构成的画面,喻示人对事物的过于依赖。在《几何》系列中,艺术家批判个人的学会无关、以单方面的知识传达为目的的填鸭式教育,并反顾只为保持社会安全 与权力结构而消灭个人的能力与个性的状况。闫珩将看似互相无关的视角图像随意组合,使人从板板六十四的思考方式摆脱出,开导出更多元化、更脱离界限的思想解放。
