A sense of self is central to Hao Jing’s art, as she captures an intimate vision of the inner experience. From deep within Jing’s bold and expressive abstractions emerge suggestions of forms and figures, rendered with a powerful emotional poignancy. Often there is a fish motif present in Jing’s works, an image with deep significance in Chinese culture exploring life’s journey through emptiness and meaning. The artist works in acrylic paint on canvas with a broad, sweeping brushstroke, long drips, and a rapid, choppy mark, giving her paintings an appealing sense of freedom and spontaneity. With a blending of Eastern and Western influences, the works draw on the energy and movement of calligraphy and ink painting, while retaining the essence and action of their creation.
Born in Shanghai to an artistic family, Hao Jing received her BFA in Fine Art Education from Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts and studied at Dong Hua University. In addition to her career as a professional artist, she has also worked as an international fashion model with the Metropolitan Modeling Agency in Paris.
