Made in Taiwan
YANG MAO-LIN, Behavior of Game Playing: Triumph and Strength II, 1988, oil on canvas, 330 x 260 cm.

"Made in Taiwan" was an evocative title for Yang Mao-Lin's recent retrospective at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, tying his work to the specific context of Taiwan, and perhaps evoking a hint of nostalgia for decades past when the island was once a manufacturing powerhouse. However, it would be wrong to see Yang's oeuvre simply as industrial-boom-inspired pop art.
