Wang Guangle is one of the most important conceptual artists of his generation. He was the founder of the N12 group that parted from the tradition of figurative painting and individual expression.


His canvasses are made up of multiple layers of paint, focusing on the physicality of the medium and the repetitive process. The long and laborious process of creation gives his abstract paintings a peaceful and spiritual aura that some have compared to the works of Mark Rothko.

----------------------------------------------


王光樂是當代其中一位最重要的概念藝術家,他創立的藝術家組織N12致力擺脫具像繪畫和個人表達的傳統框架,在藝術界頗具影響力。


他常在畫布上堆疊一層層的顏料,注重這重複塗抹的過程和媒材質感的呈現。他的創作過程頗費心力與時間,為他的抽象作品添上一股有如馬克.羅斯科作品般平和的靈性氛圍。
