洪浩(1965年,北京)自上世纪90年代起即频繁地在国内外重要展览中亮相。作品被国内外重要美术馆及机构收藏,如:美国纽约现代艺术博物馆、美国大都会博物馆、美国波士顿美术馆、美国洛杉矶保罗盖蒂博物馆、英国大英博物馆、英国维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆、加拿大国家美术馆、日本福冈亚洲美术馆、韩国光州美术馆、澳大利亚昆士兰美术馆、澳大利亚白兔美术馆、香港M+博物馆等。

Hong Hao (b. 1965, Beijing) graduated from the Printmaking Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1989. The artist currently lives and works in Beijing. Much of Hong Hao’s work features assembled scanned images of various found objects including maps, books, tickets, receipts, banknotes, food, and containers. In his 2009 solo exhibition “Hong Hao: Bottom” at Beijing Commune, the artist exhibited a series that features the bottom half of everyday objects. By arranging the scanned images according to their forms and colors, he destructs the functional property of the materials and reproduces an undifferentiated, flattened, deliberately superficial world of aesthetics. While Hong Hao continues to work with found objects, ”AS IT IS,” his recent solo exhibition at Beijing Commune, deals with the physical forms in a more straightforward manner, creating an interesting dialectic development of both the vocabulary and concept of his art.
