Solo Exhibition of Lu Chuntao
New York / Washington D.C.
12.9.2016 – 12.15.2016

Hushengxiangwai brings together two phrases that capture both the regional context from which his ink painting emerges and his particular expressive goals as an artist. Lu Chuntao’s painting speaks quite literally to Shanghai’s periphery in a physical sense. Most important, however, are the meanings he suggests with this personal vocabulary, or rather, the constantly fluctuating dreamlike allusions he evokes in the minds of his viewers.
