The Name of Poppy, or A Feeling Game

—Tracing “McGuffin” in Yang Jun’s works

Zhou Wenhan

 

Everyone who has seen the “Impressions of History” and “Blueless” of Yang Jun maybe agree with me that he writes the historical prose in a visual way. As a young artist who has great academic background, he insists on creating ink and wash paintings, which seems to condense, in a modern way. “Dead and Gone”, one of the serial works ”Impression of History”, presents a lot of life-sized soldiers, confronting the middle-class audience on the wall. And the so-called “confrontation against forgetting” seems suddenly unexpected at the present time.

That’s what exactly I felt about his works, and that’s why I’m so surprise when I see the flower clusters in his new works ”Happiness”. It also reminds me the flowers and birds in the “blueless” which finished many years ago. At that time, he painted and copied the flowers arranging in scholars’ houses, just like Chinese traditional still painting. But this time the artist is a little bit different, because he is concentrating on nothing but the flowers. 

Maybe he takes the turning as a relief in the process of creating “Impression of History”, at least I think so at the first glance. Because the works, even look like decorative paintings or print, make me easy. But when I appreciate them again, the strange feeling comes.

The flowers grow, from earth to sky, spreading and blossoming. They look like sunflowers or chrysanthemums with strong vitality. But in fact, they’re poppies as the artist says. No matter what they are, the spreading branches and straight corollas suppose to be bright and colorful, and so does he at the beginning. But I prefer the later ones, in which he controls all, using gray and brown instead of vivid colors. In this way, the flowers turn to be a kind of plant only existing in imagination.

Opium, the strongly addictive narcotic drug prepared from the dried juice of unripe poppy pods,  not allowed to be planted privately. But papaver rhoeas, similar to poppy, can be planted as you want. The names of flowers or trees compose too much meaning, such as “Beauty and Guilty”, “Pleasure and Taboo” and so on. But the artist gives up those meaning by distorting the shape and color to avoid the over-reading.

It’s just the “Avata” time when he’s creating the works. The plants on Pandora from the movie influenced him. I’ve written an article about “Avata” before, discussing the point “New Sublime Aesthetics”. The director and his group inspired by the plants on earth, and changed them to create a “brave new world” in the movie. Yang does the same work. But differ from the movie, he doesn’t over-strength the plant’s color or shape. Exaggeration isn’t his purpose.

As I know, most contemporary artists major in plants follow the rules of Georgia O’ Keeffe: micro-observation, enlarge, gaze. So does Yang. But he cuts a new composition, especially the pattern of one-one or four-in-one which are obviously double cuts. He wants to reform the “typical composition”. So in one hand, the combination of branches brings the feeling of depth, but in another hand, he uses the color to squeeze the spaces. And finally, there are some flat compression spaces to be shown. In other words, the plants grow in a parallel space, all we can see are just shadows.

In fact, the early works of this series are closer to traditional painting, but gradually he goes a different way, especially in the aspects of composition and style. The way of observing leads him to correct his own composition and brushwork. There’s a significant transition in his works, which makes him from a traditional painter to be a conceptual artist. He adjusts the brushwork, ink and shades to combine the color blocks of plants, close to the pixel style.

One thing I have most interests in is fiction. Although there are arguments about “like or unlike”

in traditional painting, they still focus on appearance. Yang breaks the wall by changing the way of observation. This serial works presents the transformation of the artist, with some hesitation:

He doesn’t want to go far in the revolutionary way, and the abstract or conceptual images are replaced by ink-water brush.

He continues adjusting the images, feelings and concepts precisely in practice. The relationships such as “mind” and “thing”, “abstract” and “figural” collapse in this process. Finally, the sensitive solid poppies generate a hybrid gene which creates a brand-new kind of plant that invades people’s hearts. In other words, his feelings often blow between self-consciousness, composition and colors, etc. and achieve the “harmony of ordinary and weird”.

Let’s back to the topic “poppy”. In my opinion, the plant doesn’t transform to the strange one on Pandora although the artist twists it, enlarges it and reforms it. Actually, the poppy becomes McGuffin who was in the movies of Hitchcock to make suspense and push the story. You don’t have to see it, because it grows in imagination. Or you can abandon it. It all depends on you.

 罂粟经过落红才能结出饱含毒汁的果实,一夜春雨,片片丹红为谁落?

  你看着我,我也看着你,

  你用这样的眼光看我,我也同样的这样看着你,

  我本无毒,你也不坏,

  是你把我制成毒,你也就坏了
