Fang Xiangming's landscape paintings evoke the spirit of the Barbizon School, known for its regal depictions of the fields, woods, and people of Barbizon, near Paris, creating a sanctuary for the soul. However, Fang's work takes on a distinct mood as he captures the landscapes and inhabitants of his native town in Kaihua, located in west Zhejiang province.

His ongoing exhibition, Hometown, at the Chinese Academy of Oil Painting until May 3, is a heartfelt tribute and offering to the land that has continuously nurtured his art and provided solace. The exhibition showcases approximately 280 oil works, sketches, and watercolors, offering a glimpse into the natural beauty and the local inhabitants who have served as his artistic and life mentors over the span of three decades.

This collection represents his gratitude and deep connection to the place that has shaped his artistic vision and provided him with inspiration and comfort.
