Eileen Chang once waved off the word “tragedy” as a label for her writing, which she felt tied things up too neatly. Instead, she described her work as an art of “desolation,” whose effects penetrate more deeply by never resolving, “like the conjunction of scallion green with peach red, creating an equivocal contrast.” [1] You could see Wang’s work, too, as a succession of equivocal contrasts that play out against its placid backdrops: its gray skies, blank spaces, meditative gardens, and warm table lamps. You might find some relief, but never closure.

[1] Eileen Chang, quoted in Yuan Wang, Transgressing Boundaries: Hybridity in Ailing’s Writing and Its Multidimensional Interpretations in Contemporary China (PhD diss., McGill University, 2006), 57.
