This publication accompanies a solo exhibition of Chinese artist Huang Rui at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, Hong Kong, from May to August 2014. This exhibition focuses on paintings that were made in the artist’s early career from 1983 to 1986.
‘These early abstract works represent a new framing of reality for contemporary China, one that becomes free from the expressions of socialist realism, which controlled art under Maoist China. They are now being re-examined as significant examples of contemporary art deeply rooted in Chinese philosophies and structures setting Huang Rui apart from art of that era’. – from gallery’s website.
