One of the most prestigious artists in Chinese contemporary art, Xiaobai Su is among a generation of legendary artists who left China in the 1980s. He adopts lacquer, a medium steeped in Chinese history, as his aesthetic means, and has developed a sensuous yet rigorous art practice that defies classification.
Driven by Chinese tradition, Xiaobai Su creates intriguing and magnificent work that speaks a Western language of visual abstraction, with the Buddhist mantra “All reality is a phantom, and all phantoms are real” as its core. Luscious and mysterious, his body of work is defiantly sculptural yet exquisitely delivered– a constellation of extraordinary objects.
With a PhD from Harvard University and a position as research professor in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh, Gao Minglu is a renowned critic, curator, and scholar of Chinese contemporary art since the mid-1980s.
