About HU MING :
Chinese immigrants began to trickle into Australia in
1940. Nowadays men and women of Chinese ethnicity contribute greatly to the
life of Australia
particularly in the Valley of the Arts. There is growing interest in Asian Art
with both private and public art galleries intensifying the now long pursuit
ties with Asia, which is having a far greater
social and artistic effect on our community.
There is a new face in the wave of established Asian
Artists. HU Ming is a pioneer in her field being diverse in combining both
modem and classical styles. There is a blend of exotic, strange, humorous and
above all mysterious in her art. She merges a conscious sense of post modernism
and element of sub-culturalism.
Her paintings express dearly her worship of the female
form depicting both physical strength and feminine beauty. Her works are not of
a planned process born of her dreams and represents an accumulation of her
She has held exhibitions in Japan
and Singapore with her paintings
being sold to buyers in the US,
Canada, Asia and Europe.
In 1970 at the age of 15 she joined the Chinese Army.
Her mother and father both served in the army as Doctors. She was eventually
promoted to the rank of Major after 20 years continuous service. Hu Ming began
her army training as a nurse. Whilst still in the army she studied art and
graduated in 1983 from The Fine Arts College of 7‑janfin where she majored in
traditional Chinese painting. She further developed her skills sufficiently to
become a scenic artist, costume designer and production designer in the Chinese
military film studio. As a part of her training Hu Ming studied extensively at
the ultimate shrine to Buddhism in Dun Huang. Here she traced a large number of
cave paintings, which helps her perfect her skills in traditional figure
painting. One of Hu Ming's works was added to the collection of the Tiarijin Museum.
She moved to Australia
in 2000 and is a permanent resident, most recently exhibiting in China,
Australia and Germany.
