Lives and Works: China
Yan Heng captures his personal experiences and social ideology in his work. Yan Heng's work is inspired by his ordinary and simple everyday life, as he combines people, used objects and incidents that surround him in his life. Combining old broken electronic objects and painting in one surface, his work reflect the artist's critical stance on man's excessive reliance on objects that invade the human cognitive domain. The Geometric series criticize the learning by rote that prioritizes conventional delivering of knowledge regardless of individual learning ability and compulsory education which sets aside individual ability and character and functions simply for authority and social maintenance. Through combining faces that run contradictory and unrelated to each other, the artist encourages us to transcend beyond the confined realm of standardized ways of thought, to multi-dimensional world of limitless thinking.
