ARTIST PROFILE PRESENTS GUO JIAN
Best known for his satirical, erotic paintings and installations rich in cultural narrative, Chinese-Australian artist Guo Jian is a leading figure in contemporary Australian art. For his Artist Project at Sydney Contemporary, Artist Profile magazine presents a new series of paintings by Guo Jian, engaging with traditional Song Dynasty landscapes to interrogate the relationship between China’s ‘rubbish culture’, the disposability of celebrity and the destruction of minority cultures.
