As a parent, Andy Yang’s responsibilities have often rendered him ineligible for spontaneous hiatus to faraway lands where one goes into a new environment of wonder. Amidst these conditions of production, the expressionist painter revels in introspection where his mind massages his consciousness into a state of wander. Getting lost in books rich in culture, music that is ingrained in every nerve of his impetus to paint, and a new residency that grants a new found abode, Yang creates his own field trips. He makes drawings and sketches of scenery while traveling in them. Within the complexed layers of imagination, Yang detoured (created) into new dimensions of excursions – hideaways and sanctuaries where he takes a breather for a short moment.
Imaginary Excursions invites you to join Yang in his expedition into the wilderness. Within the collective of paintings as installation, find your safe space and listen to the heartbeat of your own fantasy.
