Tang Song (唐宋)

Crime Scene

2012

128 cm (h) x 95 cm (l) x 5 cm (d)

Mixed Media on Canvas

Harsh straight lines of varying lengths cut across a broad canvass layered with colour. Even without knowing what is the inspiration behind this abstract yet poignant painting, one can still sense the emotion, violence and resolute ideals that went into the process of its creation. Tang Song is an artist of action, and Crime Scene took the brunt of it as he preformed the painstaking layering of paint before slashing, cutting a whipping lines into his work to reveal the complexity of its layers. But, of course, there is a back story. During the tragedy of Tiananmen Square, a photo was taken of a man wearing a white shirt, carrying two bags – it became iconic and is still today in everybody’s memory. He faced a line of tanks as if to stop them from rolling on the square with the power of his solitude. The lines and details in Crime Scene reference this photo allowing the viewer to see into the past, and possibly question: what is worth fighting for?
