'Shang Yang's paintings always remind me of the words of the French poet Mallarme: 'Writing a poem is a fight between words and blank paper.' A piece of blank paper is just like a black hole which would absorb all weak words; Only those really powerful words could resist the absorbency and stand on the paper. As a result, a bad poem gives us a feeling that there's nothing on the paper whereas a great poem, even if it contains only a few words, could distract us away from the existence of the paper on which it is written. Shang Yang's paintings are just like such powerful words.' - Yu Hong.
