Exhibition: "Cao Jun: Hymns to Nature"

Presented by McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College at McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College, Boston MA

Exhibition: "Cao Jun: Hymns to Nature"

Hymns to Nature is Cao Jun’s first exhibition in the United States. Arranged thematically, the exhibition opens with his early works depicting wild animals. It moves on to later paintings where he employs the techniques of ink- and color-splashing.

Cao Jun was born in 1966 and raised in Jiangsu Province in southern China, where the lakes and rivers shaped his childhood environment. For eighteen years he studied and worked near Mount Tai, one of China’s most ancient places of worship and ceremonial ritual. Concrete experience of both aquatic sites and mountainous terrain informed Cao Jun’s approach to artistic creation. After formal training in Beijing, he settled in New Zealand yet traveled throughout Europe and the United States.
