China Nexus, Stella Downer Gallery, Sydney, 23 July – 23 August 2011
Artists: Gao Ping, Hu Qinwu, Huang Xu, Lao Dan, Liu Zhuoquan
Chinese Nexus brings together five innovative artists who are at the forefront of the contemporary art movement in Beijing: GAO PING, HU QINWU, HUANG XU, LAO DAN and LIU ZHUOQUAN. Each artist has a distinctive style and creative process but common to their practice is a search for meaning and spirituality beyond the political and material. Although these artists emulate a contemporary aesthetic, references to traditional scholarly techniques and feeling for poise and order convey an enduring Chinese sensibility.
