Painting of the Week, Art Quotes

Victor Wang, “Holding a Moment,” 2010, oil and collage on canvas, 63 x 48 in.

“I am deeply inspired by events in my past — growing up during a politically turbulent time period, immigrating to the United States, starting over from nothing, attending art school, and finally finding success as an artist and art instructor. One common thread that can be seen echoed in nearly all my paintings is the sunflower … For me, these flowers recall memories both fond and harrowing. Especially during the Cultural Revolution, the sunflower became a political symbol.”

~Victor Wang (Artists on Art magazine, Issue 30 July/August 2018, “Two Artists, One Roof”)
