Congress Honored Dr. YuHua Wang

On November 13th 2008, at the Capitol in Washington D.C., several members of Congress and the Congressional Arts Caucus held an exhibition of the artwork of Professor Yuhua Wang and an official reception honoring her. The exhibition hall was crowded with people, including numerous officials and dignitaries. Many members of Congress, council members of the District of Columbia, ambassadors, and diplomats came to appreciate the exhibits on display. They praised the beauty of the artwork as being beyond imagination and praised Dr. Wang for bringing the light of beautiful art into the Capitol. Even after the exhibition ended, there were still members of Congress who came to the exhibition hoping to view Dr. Wang’s works of art.

Professor Wang personally attended the official reception in her honor. The hall was filled to capacity, making it a very grand occasion indeed. Members of Congress and members of the Congressional Arts Caucus added their support by signing and presenting certificates of commendation. During the official reception, members of Congress gave speeches expressing their respect for Professor Yuhua Wang. They praised Professor Wang for her outstanding contributions to world color-painting, sculpture, oriental arts, and the development of cultural exchange. A Congressional Commendation stated that Professor Wang is a selfless person whose moral character is noble. It also stated that through her practice of Buddhism, she benefits humanity and all living beings. Members of Congress who initiated the exhibition proudly presented that Congressional Commendation to Professor Wang as a symbol of appreciation and gratitude for her service to America and humanity. The Mayor of Washington D.C., Adrian M. Fenty, presented to Professor Wang a certificate welcoming the exhibition of her artwork in the nation’s capital and welcoming her to visit the entire area of Washington D.C.

Members of Congress who initiated and held this art exhibition included Corrine Brown, Danny Davis, Eliot L. Engel, Adam Schiff, Neil Abercrombie, Chaka Fattah, David Wu, and others.

Dr. Yuhua Wang was born in China and permanently resides in the United States. She is currently a research professor at the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University in the United States. She has been highly commended by the president and vice-president of Auburn University and by the dean of the college where she is a visiting professor for her achievements in the study of colors. Her faux coral and cobblestones that she hand-sculpted from light-weight material and painted have been praised in the Congressional Record as being “treasures of the world.” The Congressional Record also states, “In the history of Chinese art, her lotus flower paintings are unsurpassed…”

Professor Stephen Farthing, who is a world-renown authoritative scholar on art, the Rootstein Hopkins Research Chair in Drawing at the University of the Arts in London, and a R.A. (Royal Academician), evaluated the artwork of Dr. Wang. He concluded that her paintings may draw heavily upon the traditions of Eastern art but they present themselves as extraordinarily western ideas and images. He also said that Dr. Wang’s paintings very elegantly bring two forces together-the force that rejects perspective and the force of photorealism. In his short foreword to the book World’s Highest-Level Color Paintings and Ink-Wash Paintings-the Art of Professor Yuhua Wang, Professor Farthing wrote that that the space Dr. Wang’s paintings occupy was only opened up in Western culture in the 20th Century. He also wrote that Professor Wang’s paintings “…reach across cultures to celebrate the space that exists intellectually and emotionally between representation and abstraction, between a fact and an idea.”

It is said that a person’s creations are a reflection of his or her character. Dr. Yuhua Wang has always been a very diligent person who leads a simple life. Even when she is ill, she still attends to her daily life and is unwilling to have others do her work. All who meet her sense her goodness, compassion, friendliness, elegance, and noble character. Seeing her creations is like seeing her in person. In either case, one is left with a feeling of great comfort, ease, and peace.

On July 30, 2008, the United States Congressional Record affirmed that “…Dr. Yuhua Wang…has been recognized as a great artist and sculptor.” It was also stated in that Congressional Record that she 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 West. Additionally, Denis G. Antoine, Ph.D., Dean of the Ambassadors of the Western Hemisphere, wrote in a congratulatory letter that the color forms created by Professor Wang are pioneering and without comparison, and her paintings unleash blissful emotions. He also wrote that Professor Wang’s works make people not only think of but also perceive a world of colors that brings a calming a peaceful impact on the mind.

The exhibition displayed four of Professor Wang’s hand-sculpted faux coral painted in oil colors. Those works are entitled “Glamour in Pink,” “Arching Branches,” “Parched Antiquity,” and “Cinnabar Nectar.” Another exhibit is called “Seventy-Seven Stones,” which are exquisitely hand-sculpted and painted faux cobblestones. Additionally, there will be displayed ten ink-wash paintings called “Spiritual Air,” “The Appeal of Lotuses,” “Two Chicks Under the Wool Tree,” “Ink Alone Excels Nature,” “Auspicious Atmosphere at the Lotus Pond,” “Light, Elegant Ink; Three Lovely Flowers,” “Yuhua,” “Lotus Fragrance Blown by the Wind,” “Golden Lotuses,” and “A Bit of Charming Autumn Scenery.” The three oil paintings on exhibition were “Flying Object in the Night,” “Heavenly World,” and “Exuberant Life.” All of these exhibits were authentic, and most of them were chosen by International Arts Publishing to be included in the book World’s Highest-Level Color Paintings and Ink-Wash Paintings-the Art of Professor Yuhua Wang.

At the exhibition, news reporters asked Professor Yuhua Wang which one of the works of art that she created is her favorite. Her answer, which she gave without hesitation, has profound meaning. She said, “Whichever work of art is everyone’s favorite is my favorite work of art!”

United States Senator Dianne Feinstein stated in her certificate of commendation that Professor Wang’s work in the oriental arts across the nation has distinguished her as a leader in the field. In a congratulatory letter, United States Congressman Edward Royce praised Dr. Wang for her outstanding accomplishments in education and art, especially in the areas of lotus flower paintings and sculpting.

Professor Wang’s hand-sculpted faux coral on which she painted oil colors are even more genuine-looking and more beautiful in form and color than real coral found at the bottom of the sea or on islands. Touching these works of art is like touching real coral that has been immersed and eroded in water. One cannot help but admire Dr. Wang for creating coral with a texture of having been immersed and eroded in water for thousands of years. This texture is difficult to find even with real coral at the bottom of the sea. The forms and colors of her faux coral reveal a quality of elegance and good taste. Such works of art are many times more beautiful than natural coral and have become rare artistic treasures. It is no wonder that her art is regarded as “treasures of the world.”

The cobblestones that Professor Yuhua Wang hand-sculpted from light-weight material and painted are exquisite and were made with meticulous attention to detail. These intriguingly and unpredictably varied faux cobblestones are not only genuine-looking, they are even more beautiful than real cobblestones. Their spots, streaks, watermarks, weathered appearance, reflecting light, and hues are all lifelike and exquisite. In all of their myriad variations, these cobblestones capture the spirit and form of real cobblestones yet surpass the beauty of natural ones. None of her cobblestones duplicates any other cobblestone in form, lines, color, or extent of weathered or aged appearance. Each cobblestone is in and of itself a meticulously and realistically painted work of art. Just like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflower Paintings, Dr. Wang’s oil painting on these cobblestones has been called wondrous color application and the most superb art in the world.

The ink and wash paintings of Professor Wang are boldly arranged yet lack the slightest trace of affectation. They have an air of ease and smoothness and convey a sense of complete naturalness. They express loftiness and broadmindedness and are imbued with deep charm and liveliness. Those works of art by Professor Wang can indeed be called ink and wash paintings of the highest order.

A great artist concluded that the lotus flowers painted by Professor Wang are the best in the world. He said, “She has an amazingly wide variety of techniques that she applies in an unpredictable way. It is hard to imagine that there is someone in this world with such adroit artistry. In her brushwork, she merges charm, strength, hues, scholarliness, graceful jaggedness, vitality, self-cultivation, and morality.”

The modern paintings of Dr. Wang have a unique style to them. Their lines flow smoothly and freely. Their diverse and unpredictable color combinations can express bold intensity, overflowing enthusiasm, traditional elegance, inspiring vitality, rustic charm, or majestic splendor. Those paintings are truly a feast for the eyes. Deeply embedded within them are feelings and wondrous skills. Her modern paintings are very sophisticated and should be carefully viewed. Actually, a magnifying glass would reveal that each of the many different parts that make up one of her modern paintings is a work of art in and of itself with its own unending appeal. This proves that Professor Yuhua Wang’s color application in modern paintings is another area where she has attained consummate artistic mastery.

Take, for example, her work entitled Yuhua. The leaves were painted with bold strokes, giving them a sense of natural charm. The stem was painted from top to bottom with one vigorous stroke of the brush, producing a gracefully jagged effect. The flower conveys the sense that it was painted with ease. It does not have the form of a flower but appears like a flower. This adeptly created work is not tainted by the slightest artificial brushstroke. In all of these aspects, Yuhua embodies the apex of artistic accomplishment.

The exhibits displayed in this Congressional exhibition deserve to be called works of art that are unique in the entire world.

Hand Crafted Corals By Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

Hand Crafted Corals By Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is a highly skilled and talented artist who has created a unique form of art using hand-sculpted wood and oil paints. Her faux coral sculptures are so realistic that they are often mistaken for real coral. The texture, watery tone, colors, and charm of her sculptures are breathtaking and truly unique.

In 2008, Dr. Wang’s artworks were exhibited in the Gold Room at the United States Capitol, where her talents were recognized by the United States Congress. She was officially recognized as “a great artist and sculptor” for her outstanding accomplishments and contributions to cultural exchange between the East and the West.

Coral reefs are one of nature’s most impressive creations, often referred to as the “rainforests of the sea.” They are massive structures made of limestone deposited by coral polyps. Dr. Wang’s sculptures not only capture the beauty of coral reefs but also showcase her own artistic talents. Her work truly is a testament to the power of human creativity and imagination.

Parched Ancient Coral

This piece was hand-sculpted and painted in oil colors by Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. Its shape and colors are even more genuine-looking and beautiful than those of real coral from the bottom of the sea or parched islands. When touching this sculpture, it tangibly feels like coral that has been eroded through immersion in water for millions of years. One cannot help but marvel at how such coral texture is created by Prof. Wang. Corals of such kind are difficult to find. Its appeal is further enhanced by the matching hand-sculpted vase called Emerald Green Fine Jade. The set has an air of elegance and refinement, surpassing the beauty of natural coral.

Sheep Tallow Dew

Pink, moist-looking, and with an understated luster, this faux coral seems as sleek as sheep tallow jade. It conveys a sense of morning dew that is deeply moving. Its wonder, colors, lustrous beauty, overall quality, and artistic flair unite to form a precious sculpture captivating in both spirit and appearance. Combined with a hand-sculpted, delightful, elegant matching vase of milky white faux jade, it becomes a doubly charming masterpiece. When a special exhibition of the art of Yuhua Shouzhi Wang was held at the United States Capitol, it was stated in the Congressional Record that her wood-based faux coral and cobblestones that she hand-sculpted and painted with oil colors “have become treasures of the world.”

Hanging Coral

This attractively hanging coral is as clean as white jade. After it was sculpted from wood material, it was painted with oil colors and glazed. It conveys a sense of moistness and distinctive texture stemming from its natural-looking shape, hues, and luster. It is sleek yet true to life as if it were real coral. All who view it will enjoy its purity, elegance, and comforting air. Combined with the matching vase called “Cai Yi Tao,” this faux coral appears even more beautiful, attractive, and elegant than real ones in nature. This piece was on view in a dedicated exhibition of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang at the United States Capitol in 2008.

Sea Palace Monarch

This gigantic coral you now see has been named “Sea Palace Monarch.” Presumably, your first feeling was that of surprise. Is it a genuine coral? Does such large coral exist in the world? If it is not a genuine coral, then why do its luster, texture, and appearance look so real and natural? From the bottom of your heart, you would happily accept it as genuine coral because it is truly so beautiful, so aesthetically pleasing. How beautiful your living room would be if it contained this sculpture! Nonetheless, reason and knowledge tell you that this world could not possibly have genuine coral so huge and so gorgeous. Indeed, even if you searched every corner of every coral reef in the oceans of the earth, you would still not find coral of such beauty and size. Its name, “Sea Palace Monarch,” means that it is the sovereign of the seas since it is the largest treasure in all the oceans. However, such colossal and splendid coral cannot be found in real oceans because it simply does not exist in this world.

Each of these three faux coral sculptures has its own distinct allure and shades of color. The aged appearance of the mouse-fur-pattern faux coral gives it the particularly strong charm of an ancient fossil from the deep sea. However, the green faux coral, which seems permeable to light, looks as if it was taken from the waters near Malaysia and Indonesia. It was painted in vivid watercolors and conveys sublime elegance. Its delightful spring green expresses purity and freshness. The yellow faux coral resembling fine jade reveals an inner warmth that would certainly be enjoyable to the touch. Each of these three works is an embodiment of talent in sculpting and painting.

With unparalleled works of art such as this, it is no wonder the artistic accomplishments of Yuhua Shouzhi Wang were recognized as “treasures of the world.” Those amazing beautiful treasures are in the permanent exhibition at The International Art Museum of America  in downtown San Francisco. Admission of the museum is free.

Hand Painted Cobblestones

Hand Painted Cobblestones

If you’re a fan of cobblestone streets and the charming, rustic aesthetic they bring to a neighborhood, you’ll love these hand painted cobblestones created by Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. These cobblestones were painstakingly hand-sculpted from a light-weight material and then completed with fine, dedicated brushwork by the artist.

Although they may look like real cobblestones at first glance, these pieces are actually more beautiful than the real thing. They are precious works of art, not actual cobblestones. Upon closer examination, it is clear that the texture and color tones of these faux cobblestones are just as realistic as the real ones.

Professor Wang has spent many years sculpting these cobblestones from a light-weight material, and has then meticulously completed them with her fine brushwork. The result is a set of cobblestones that are not only beautiful, but also have the same texture and color tones as real ones. It’s hard to believe that these cobblestones are not the real thing when you look at them.

In The International Art Museum of America  permanent exhibition, has a set of seventy seven these cobblestones in total. These cobblestones are more than just a pretty facade. They are truly works of art, and a testament to the dedication and talent of Professor Wang. Every pebble she creates is unique, with its own shape, texture, color, and degree of weathering and aging. And with each pebble being an independent fine brushwork painting, it’s clear to see the level of detail and craftsmanship that goes into each one.

In year 2019, New York Academy of Art has certified that Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the international first-class artist in the world, who is ranked at the same level as Cezanne, Gaugain, Monet, and Van Gogh.

If you have the opportunity to see Professor Wang’s hand painted cobblestones in person, I highly recommend it. They are a sight to behold and a true work of art. You’ll be amazed at the level of detail and craftsmanship that has gone into creating these precious pieces. So don’t miss the chance to see these hand painted cobblestones at The International Art Museum of America  in downtown San Francisco. Admission of the museum is free.
