I came to Shanghai from AnhuiWitness the “Chinese Economic Reform”Shanghai begun to have major demolition and renovation projectsAnd this kind of reconstructionStimulated my early visual language It was also from the early 90sThe process of destruction, incinerationWas similar to the beat of this cityPudong under construction in the 1990sI tried every trendy things from the westGradually realised what my visual language isAnd what my existential values areI’ve been thinking about these issuesI was suddenly moved by the scene of fireExpress a feeling that wasI collected the materials directlyAnd applied them directly on the canvasWhen I start to experimentIn two years, there was three fireWas the first mayor of Zhou Fuhai’s stables The previous fire was next to meBurned the wires in front of my doorThe Liberation Newspaper reported it The internet came into China Later I painted Numbers 0-9 (in 10 parts)Which was exhibited in Chicago in 1999It was collected by Bill GatesBasically it was a conceptHe thought artist’s proposal was more interestingAlso wrote a letter of thanks to meThe work of "Numbers 0-9 (in 10 parts)"My works have a lot of series actually Each series is aimed at this kind of pressure And I use my own languageIn order to release and free myself There are a lot of my works on traditional cultureSeries about consumerism culture Include this in western contemporary Authority and these kind of deconstructed work that I have presentedSometimes if I leave for business tripsEven I come back later at night I would go to the studioTo sit and look around for a whileWork can actually relieve a lot of stress for meAnd life would be more organic afterwardsFor me they are integrated

Xue Song, Untitled, Acrylic on canvas and mixed media“以前我也像是那种展览‘飞人’，跑这个展览，看那个博览会，但时间久了就发现，看的再多，走得再远，回来还得干自己的活……我现在特别想能有一段时间，能更自由、更随便的去画画试试，看看能不能形成什么新的点。或者就是过过瘾，也不是一定要去达到什么，自己过过瘾也好。”虽然薛松的作品，没有明确而强势的“个性抒发”，但是每个挑选和制作得来的碎片、环环相扣的阶段，都能或多或少的感受到他倾注在作品中的情感和表达。——黄晟骎Xue Song, Paronomasia, Acrylic on canvas and mixed mediaXue Song is quite able to "live" in the studio. As long as he was in Shanghai, he would "grind time" in his studio every day. "My schema can be applied to anything, so my themes are really diverse. But as the technology becomes more and more mature, the works become more and more exquisite. In fact, I will be a little disgusted. I want to try to disrupt the magain and make them more free. I miss the ignorance and unpredict ability of the style when it was first established. " Perhaps, Xue Song is experiencing his "internal conflict".
2020 · 致幻——景观与抽象艺术展览现场
Exhibition site"I used to be a kind of exhibition "flying man ", rushing into exhibitions and art fairs, but as time goes by, I find that no matter how much I watch and how far I go, I have to do my own work when I come back. I extremely want to be able to have a period of time that I can be more free, more casual to try to draw, see weather if I can for many new point. Or it's just having fun, and it's not necessarily about achieving something. It's OK to have fun yourself. " Although Xue Song's works do not have a clear and strong "personality expression", but each selected and produced fragments, linked steps, can more or less feel the emotions and expressions he poured into the works. _Huang Shengqin
