Wan Yang Artist Statement:

What we make, is what we feel.

I believe art has the potential to inspire and empower, to shape lives and carve soon-to-be-trodden paths. Perception is in sharp focus for my creative working process; painting is an extension of my body. I paint to explore the world.

We came to this earth without words, and we are born without knowing who we are. We grow our lives to seek the answer to “I am.” When we looked back and could see our own footsteps, tracing the path from long ago – where we came from all along, they both meet together at this single point: the end and the beginning. 

The physicality of making a painting, for me, is essentially in the subconscious creative process.
