<Tribute to the Masters from Hu Ming>
Hu Ming is the kind of artist who cannot be easily interpreted and summarized.Twenty years of military service, half a lifetime creative experienceand her life abroad, all of these enable her artworks to contain various crosseraand cross-region cultural elements. But the only constant is her focusand expression towards female. The women under her brush are innocent,or charming, or wild, their smiles and gestures all contain the primitive lifestrength. However, through a series of combination and junction betweenbreaking space and context, Hu Ming has re-rendered the people, mattersand objects that we thought we were familiar with, into a colorful carnivaland feast of memory.
<Tribute to the Masters from Hu Ming> is a review of the artist’s life andcreative process. What this exhibition demonstrates is the lingering militarygreen in the memory, the great feeling towards the golden land from herhometown, the extraordinary dialogue between the 87 immortals and thewomen under masters’ brush, and also the crazy party of both human beingand animals. Finally, Hu Ming spent more than fifty years to pay her tributeto the masters, to the memories, to all the sentient lives. Undoubtedly, herpaintings demonstrate the rethinking about life through her seriocomic andhalf-real half-illusive artistic style.
