Hao Liang - Portraits And Wonders

Publisher Gagosian Gallery

ISBN 9781938748592

Hao Liang is one of the foremost contemporary artists working in traditional Chinese ink painting. Seeking to revivify and extend the conventions of ink and wash painting, Hao spent many years studying Chinese classical paintings, acquiring vast knowledge of historical works, as well as the many motifs and poetic traditions related to them. Yet, in his silk handscrolls, portraits, and landscape paintings, Hao filters these techniques and themes through a contemporary, cosmopolitan consciousness, effortlessly weaving together Su Shi and Dmitri Shostakovich, Zhao Mengfu and Sergei Eisenstein, Wang Wei and Gilles Deleuze.
