Suling Wang (b. 1963, Taichung City, Taiwan) is known primarily for her large-scale, abstract paintings that explore the artist’s sense of location and distance between Eastern and Western cultures. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree at Central Saint Martins in London in 1997 and then received her Master of Arts degree from the Royal College of Art in 1999. After living and working abroad, Wang returned to her childhood home in a rural small village outside of Taichung and now spends most of her time there. She was a 2019 Artist x Artist Gala Honoree of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. Art in Embassies commissioned Wang to realized one of her largest oil and acrylic on canvas paintings to date for the American institute in Taipei, Taiwan. The Singing River 2, 2016, is over seven feet high and almost thirty feet long; its motifs are influenced by the landscape of her childhood in Taiwan, the changes that followed, and the cross-cultural dialogue between the histories of Eastern and Western art.
