Hu Ming: The Little Red Book

An exhibition of paintings from one of China's most revered contemporary artists

Wentworth Galleries is bringing Hu Ming to Sydney for this exciting exhibition featuring new works from her Beijing studios.

These remarkable paintings stem from the cultural revolution and a cross cultural connection. This important artist, born in China, lived and worked in Sydney for many years before returning to the country of her birth.

Her early years were spent in the Chinese Army making propaganda films and iconic artworks. This experience juxtaposed with an expat perspective of life and her homeland bring a unique and original viewpoint on China and the world beyond. Exploration of her life experiences, stringent government art training in China and a love of classical renaissance art all combine to deliver a must see exhibition of art in Sydney.

There is a new face in the wave of Asian artists breaking on our shores with Hu Ming. She is a pioneer in her field, being diverse in combining both modern and classical styles. There is a blend of exotic, strange, humorous and above all mysterious in her art. She merges a conscious sense of post modernism and element of sub-culturalism.

Her paintings express dearly her worship of the female form depicting both physical strength and feminine beauty. Her works are not of a planned process and represent an accumulation of her diverse experiences.
