Artist Statement:

As a Chinese contemporary artist, Xin Wang makes painting and installation for establishment her individual thinking which is separated from the collective consciousness in Chinese culture. “Yellow Consciousness” is the term that the artist Xin Wang has invented to define a kind of brainwashed ideology she has observed in the Chinese culture due to their government-imposed and formulaic education system. The color yellow is always a dominant factor for her audience and their reception of her political message about brainwashing, Chinese culture, and her own ethnic background. Xin Wang uses the luminous yellow, which translates from the culture of yellow into her wall painting to make a conversation with her audience about perception and afterimage.
