Xue Yaojun's combining his memory of his youth with the present reality created a mysterious world with the surrealistic narrative. It is beautiful and magical. Xue's seems to be influenced by the French artist Paul Gauguin he had never know, yet coincidentally their longing to escape the material society; Gauguin over a century ago escaped the island of Tahiti, while Xue flees to his hometown. The elements on their paintings such vigorous young natives, brilliant colored flowers, simplistic approach to the landscape can draw synchronized parallel to their works. Xue Yaojun's works incorporate multiple disciplines such as expressionism, figurative, representationalism, impressionism. But, no one dominant style represents it all. The barely exposed elements of Degas-like dark palette that bore the influence of Dutch painting gave way to the use of vivid colors and bold brushstrokes. Like a "snapshots," freezing moments of time to portray his subjects accurately, imparting a sense of movement. His playful Myth and youth series the style draw parallel to the Italian Renaissance fresco paintings. The images intensified view from a distance. Reflect the Xue's extraordinary capacity regarding painting.
