Ink has been confined for generations to a masculine universe. Here, Hong Wai (洪慧) journeys with ink to a new frontier, that of the mysterious feminine. The mountain and river landscape has become instead a woman’s body. The ode to heaven and earth has become an ode to the sensuous, the hidden, the ineluctable yin.

Shanghai-born artist Hong Wai uses her brush with uncommon skill, mastering the nuances of ink a well as the wash effect. Her works, using live with live models, exude an intimacy rare in Chinese painting. They are both highly feminine and feminist, examples of not just the beauty of the female form but also, somehow, their bold claim to independence in love and in spirit.
