This exhibition in Hong Kong accompanied the launch of the book Half the Sky – conversations with women artists in China by Luise Guest and gives a glimpse of the work of 10 of these fascinating artists. The exhibition is intended to reveal the diversity of the women’s practice, as well as to suggest possible subtle connections between the artists and Chinese art practice in general.

Meditations-Hu Qinwu, Niagara Galleries, Melbourne 2016

Hu Qinwu is sometimes described as an abstract painter, and indeed in the last ten years he has developed a visual language of line, grid, tone and mark which at first sight seems akin to Western modernist abstraction. However his working method is grounded in his Buddhist beliefs about connectedness and meaning, and in recent years he has used layers of Chinese calligraphy referencing Buddhist sutras (prayer books) in his work. Some oil on canvas works use layers of rich colour – reds and royal blues – which appear almost to shimmer and vibrate under an all-over pattern of dots which form a grid on the surface of the work. In other works on paper which use tempera paint and ink, sometimes with a fine grid of lines drawn in gold, the colour is reduced to a monochrome of subtle shades of grey, black and white.
