The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong will present solo exhibition "Digital Brush: The Photographic Process of Fu Wenjun" from January 8 to February 22, 2019.


2019. Fu Wenjun’s creative output can be summed up by his term Digital Pictorial Photography, which he uses to redefine the traditions found at the core of the photographic arts. By blending elements of other artistic media into the process, he creates a brand-new form of aesthetic pleasure. Fu Wenjun embraces a range of art forms, combining them into unique and monumental works that reach beyond the mere act of recording a photographic image.
After Fresh Rain in the Mountains showcases his lavish use of ink, which forms a 3 x 3 grid of raised squares that reflect both shadow and space, further expanding the primary inked image. The effect of layering found in much of Fu Wenjun’s art is an example of how he strives to break photographic norms. For him, a photograph is not merely a depiction to be restricted to two dimensions, as the image can be dissected and expanded so as to interact with space and light in the creation of new artistic perspectives.
His work brings together the practical aspect of photography with the aesthetic nature of other forms of visual arts. By demonstrating the complementary relationship of photographs and other modes of artistic practice, Fu Wenjun transforms what may seem to be an inaccessible message into a highly approachable concept that can trigger critical thought about history and humanity.
