Preface 

Mineral colors, like ink, lacquer, or other materials of long artistic traditions, are important carriers of Chinese traditional cultural and artistic values. Many artists of our generation are actively exploring ways to transform traditional materials and techniques into contemporary representations. Among them all, the artistic identity of Hong Bao stands out for her unique enchanted plays, dreamlike colors, and exquisite textures. 

Fan House is pleased to present Hong Bao’s solo exhibition, featuring over seven years of the artist’s comprehensive practice in mineral colors. This collection of over twenty paintings, ranging from her MFA graduate works to recently emerged styles, are all rooted in and evolved from the traditional genre of mineral color works.

As Hong Bao develops her signature style, one of the earliest and perhaps most important sources of inspiration is her field studies of ancient mural works from Kizil Caves, Xinjiang and Dunhuang, Gansu. Reflecting upon the depth and dimension of such timeless beauty, Hong Bao tries to establish her own approach integrating the ancient classics and modern experience. In Desert Thoughts, a large piece painted after her field trip to the West in 2011, Hong Bao renders her visit to the Buddhist sceneries into a fairyland of wonders, showing her profound understanding of the dynamic relations between past and present, and between general subject matters and individual perceptions. 

In recent works, Hong Bao juxtaposes the disconnected metropolitan living with the invigorating natural liveliness, addressing her longingness for the ideal world. Under the moonlight, she employs an extensive cast of characters and objects, such as fish, butterflies, unicorns, peacocks, elephants, swans, chandeliers, and a girl in red, to create an open-ended narrative that offers alternative fantasy for the viewers. 

As the surface of mineral colors shines and sparkles, Hong Bao brings together the elegance of classical beauty and the vitality of present moment into her art world. She delicately attends to her artistic constructions, and invites the audience to immerse themselves in fresh perspectives and surreal sceneries.
