The Thai Department of Culture is sparing no effort and giving great importance to the organization of this exhibition. The Thai Department of Culture is broadcasting the exhibition announcement on the video wall of the Ratchadamnoen Contemporary Art Center on an ongoing basis. Such an announcement and related information are published on the official website of the Department of Culture. Official notice has also been issued to all universities, informing them to display the poster of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s art exhibition in their campuses.
The artistic accomplishment of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang has been acclaimed by Professor Stephen Farthing, an art scholar of world authority, who remarked that “Dr. Wang’s paintings may draw heavily on the traditions of Eastern art, but they present themselves as extraordinarily Western ideas and images.” Professor Farthing has served as the Rootstein Hopkins Research Chair of Drawing at the University of the Arts in London, and is an Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in the U.K. He also said that Dr. Wang’s mastery is of exquisite magnificence and her paintings “reach across cultures to celebrate the space that exists intellectually and emotionally between representation and abstraction, between a fact and an idea.”
On July 30, 2008, the United States Congress recognized Dr. Yuhua Wang as a “great artist and sculptor” and officially chronicled such recognition in the Congressional Record. The same record also mentioned that Dr. Wang “takes great pleasure in helping others, is a selfless person whose moral character is noble, and has made great contributions to the development of cultural exchange between the East and the West.”
The ink paintings of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang are characterized by an out-of-this-world aura that she created effortlessly; the compositions are audacious and elegant, held together by the fluidity of the ink without a trace of the brushes. The distinguished style brings about magnificent ambience filled with vivacious energy. Her super-realist techniques brought about an artistry that has never been achieved by any famous classical painters in the past. The paintings by Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang are created from the foundation of Superrealism. Her art transcends the art of noble style and grand ambience. Such achievements have established Dr. Wang as an international master in the art world.
In appreciation of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s extraordinary contributions to the arts, the New York Academy of Art especially presented a Certificate of Appreciation on January 22. The Academy recognized Dr. Wang’s distinguished talent and as an international artist who is among the top of her field.
