Instead of plane visual hierarchy, Huang Gang’s paintings contain intrinsic logicality through massive stacking techniques. His creative process consists of deconstructing and then re-constructing the original elements, such as traditional Tibetan woodblocks, Sutra manuscripts, Tibetan trunks made of yak fur, and traditional Chinese lacquer, which conveys a rich cultural quality and emits great spiritual power.

Through this exhibition, Huang Gang creates a dialogue between traditional civilization and modern culture by his own distinctive techniques. These fascinating works show profound quality of Oriental aesthetics in Huang’s unique painting way.
