Keqin Wang

Jul 22, 2020 - Michael Hicks

Keqin Wang is an artist from Xiamen, China, currently based in Syracuse, NY.  His photographs, made in China, Japan and the United States, present a nocturnal, dream-like vision of the world, and combine to create a poetic visual language.  


From Keqin:


"I wish to use black and white photographs to portray the 'real world' in my eyes. Whether it is the reflections of the leg or the crowds from the glass or it is the blurry images, it reminds the audience to question this world I’m presenting; whether it’s reality or an illusion."
