Hao Liang: Portraits and Wonders

Regular price Regular price $80

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Hao Liang: Portraits and Wonders at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, featuring new works by the artist. In these intricate, masterfully painted landscapes and portraits, Hao considers the perpetual flux of nature and time.

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.

The publication includes a new essay by Loïc Le Gall and a conversation between Hao and Philip Tinari.
