Wen Wu: First Step
15 January – 5 May 2009
Wen Wu is primarily a painter whose art-work is about the perception of beauty. Her work utilizes historical movie stars that have become embedded in our culture as icons of another age.
With these images she aims to induce a kind of interaction that facilitates an internal debate about the perceivers notions of beauty. The paintings originating from this mode of practice, work as individual pieces and when juxtaposed, set up a coherent context for an investigation.
