Shiao-Ping Wang

October 3, 2015 - November 28, 2015

Shiao-Ping Wang was born in Taiwan and immigrated to the United States in 1981. She studied both Western and Chinese art in New York and earned a MFA degree from Queens College, City University of New York.  She works both abstractly and from observation in various painting media. 

“Patterns of a constructive nature—architectural graphs, weaving patterns, and city maps—are sources for my composition.  Once I have integrated them into my work, I then add more shapes and elements to each painting layer, using acrylic paint and medium, to gradually “build” a cohesive picture that features different degrees of translucency. 

In the physical process of painting, I follow more intuition than knowledge.  I want to be in a place in my paintings where patterns are urgently needed on the emotional level so that narratives can be translated into repetitions and rhythms. In other words,  I search for forms that have the power to replace anecdotes. “

Wang’s work has been exhibited throughout the US and China.  She has taught painting and drawing in various colleges including the University of New Hampshire. In 2007 Shiao-Ping won a Fellowship at Vermont Studio Center.  In 2008 she won the Spotlight Award for Best Painter in the Seacoast.
