Biography  
Chi-Chung Hu


Hu Chi-Chung’s abstract paintings, at once intricate and vast, evoke what Kandinsky revered in art—the Stimmung (“essential spirit”) “which preserve[s] the soul from coarseness; … ‘keys it up,’ so to speak, to a certain height…” (Kandinsky 2).

Chi-Chung’s organic forms, poetically suggestive of animal-life and natural materials such as island-chains, mountains, and caves, express interesting relationships, with fractal-like displays of pattern, between the microcosmic and macrocosmic, the inner and outer realms, and the regenerative double. His use of numerals for titles may point less towards the notion of an ordered sequence and more towards the unnamable, hermetic framework of the artistic process itself.
