Where to Find Hu Jundi Artwork
INSPIRING THE IMAGINATIONFor me painting is a very personal way to share the subjects of my imagination. When I was young, my mother would always recount beautiful tales and stories to me, and eventually this imaginal world found its way into my everyday life; so when I would look at something such as the moon, I wouldn’t see just the moon, but the story of ‘the goddess and the moon’. In this way I feel my mother was my biggest childhood influence because she inspired me through these stories, which later helped me develop the ability to trust my own imagination, and paint without models or photographs. The subjects of my paintings are often women, because I think they are God’s most beautiful creation, and greatest mystery! I’ve also been influenced by the great literature of the world. In my early twenties at university I read a lot of books on Western philosophy, religion, and ethics, and feel this type of knowledge serves as a great resource to cultivate self knowledge and harmony in one’s life. Through these studies I was particularly inspired by the idea of how one can seek out and express their own individual voice through their art. In my late twenties I then began to read the poetry and literature of the East, and discovered I had a deep spiritual bond with these works and what they communicated to me. I find that traditional Chinese poetry and music provide me with a refuge from the pressures and corruption of everyday life… as someone once said, ‘to read poetry is like being in love, and I don’t want to be separated from it for a moment.’ So ultimately it’s poetry, literature and history that give me the deepest insights into the nature of humankind, and serve as the main sources of inspiration in my work.
