China’s economic development after the Cultural Revolution and the resulting transformation of society coincided with the upbringing of Wu Haizhou, who was born in the late 1970s. The artist draws us into a spiritual world of his own perception where color and brushwork and strong personalities are intertwined. His realistic depictions of industrial portraits, observations of the power machine, and metaphors that lie between concreteness and abstraction give us a sense of ambiguous hesitation and reticence. This sense runs consistently through all of Wu Haizhou’s work of recent years.
Wu Haizhou graduated from China Central Academy of Fine Arts. He was invited to hold a solo exhibition, “Here and There”, in Germany in 2009, and his first large-scale solo exhibition, “The Public Unknown”, was held in Beijing in 2010. This exhibition is Wu Haizhou’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. In this exhibition, titled “Hallucinatory Authenticity”, Wu Haizhou continues to show viewers his unique interpretation of the world.
