Yangyang Pan - Inside Out

Inside Out

Throw a glance out the window, feel the pull. Eyes seek, settle; mind follows, stays. The border between inner and outer zones fades to a blur. Yangyang Pan has done her job. What has been outside comes in. 

As Yangyang Pan curates what nature has to offer, she situates the onlooker as an integral part of her work, for it is the ability to view the landscape that provides the link between seeing, seen and scene. She makes the connection between human and natural elements, to remind us that the landscape is not alone. Indeed, nor are we. Certainly, nature’s work can do without us, but the opposite cannot be said. Heedless, we draw lifeblood from our surroundings, but through artists such as Yangyang, we are made aware of how we are linked intrinsically to the gifts of the natural world.

Yangyang does the heavy lifting. Her emotional viewfinder and her bold use of colour, stroke and texture allow us to see, somewhat clearly, through a degree of abstraction. Cheeky, she makes sure to leave us at a point where we must make our own way to the end of the journey. Although the great outdoors is framed and edited through the artist’s vision, ultimately what we choose to see is up to us.

What is outside is gathered close and absorbed. What is internal to us is set free and reborn in our interpretation. What is inside is out.

Russell Leng: June 19 - July 13


A graduate of Trinity Western University and recently earning his MFA from Edinburgh College of Art, Leng has been exhibiting his work extensively in Canada, the UK and the US.

Along with a wide online presence, and being shortlisted for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2014, Leng's work has landed in several publications including a spread in the Little Paper Planes book, Ruby magazine , Vice, and Canadian Art magazine.

In this  series of new mixed media paintings Leng continues to "explore his curiosities" as he explains in a recent interview with  Richard Schemerer  at PDX Art

I like it when things break or fall apart. I have an ongoing visual photo-log of broken vases, smashed objects, etc. The fragmented version of something is more interesting to me than the whole. Visually, I am drawn to geometric forms and I use these individual "fragments" in my work. My work involves disparate mediums at times (video, installation, painting) so that could tie into fragments as well. Anything from a hockey referee's uniform, to a piece of metal in a hardware store, or the view from an airplane are all little fragmented visual inspirations that I store up in my head or sketchbook which I can access and assemble later on.
