Huang Yan has been diverse in his use of media and approach. He has explored photography, installation, video art and postal art. In the work presented in this catalogue, Huang in collaboration with his wife, Zhang Tiemei, covers a variety of surfaces including bones, meat and human bodies with images of traditional landscape painting. In the words of Karen Smith, writer and art critic, this approach ‘emphasises and mocks the conventions of the long-held tradition, and places it firmly in the realm of modernity’. Biographical information on Huang Yan is provided.
