Song Yonghong's Artworks Show:
-Shower is no longer a real instance of showering, but has become a spiritual sensation of existence and imagery. Yonghong’s own explanation is that “the person showering expresses the introvert, self-pity, personalized, private, self-comforting, escaping, contradicting, lost in direction, repetitive, ambiguous, violent, feminine, superficial, stubborn, enjoying, positive, tranquil and more, like a mirror they reflect human nature.”
- In comparison to the recent years of violence, bloodshed, self-destruction, and disgusting artistic method, Song Yonghong’s shower expresses another feeling toward existence among contemporary people – self-consoling happiness. It becomes a supplement to the former, or the former (an outcry), and the latter (introverted self-entertainment) are the two sides of the body of contemporary human spirit.
- Within Chinese contemporary art, the disposition of Song Yonghong’s subject is very unique. It has the rigidity of a puppet, but the whole and pure feeling of volume is also strong. On the one hand, this is related to his background in prints, on the other hand, he never uses models or photographs, thus there are no structural details—whatever he feels inside will be drawn out freely by hand.
