"Lane of Venice" by Song Jiang is a visual tour of discovery in texture, color, and architecture. Jiang has pushed the perspective back to reveal a walkway centered on the canvas and its destination. Neutral tones purposefully chosen announce the view with colorful progression culminating in the building at the end of the view.
Green and terra cotta announce the coming attraction as the discovery yields its way from the shadowy lane toward the sunlit destination. Song Jiang continues to appreciate the time of day and the subdued contrast of the buildings with the refreshing white building of central importance.
The sky and wispy cloud are the beckoning surprise at the end of the Lane of Venice.
