Hu Kun-Jung

1955 born in Taiwan

Hu’s works are geometric abstract, hard edge, and minimalist styles, which were well received. His unique visual imagery broke through the framework of traditional painting by introducing concepts unrelated to the world of identifiable objects. At this time, Hu became acquainted with Richard Lin, who had recently returned from Great Britain. Deeply inspired by Lin, Hu strengthened his resolve to explore the essence and principles of art. His work 《Condensation》 was selected by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum for its Contemporary Sculpture Exhibition in R.O.C. 1985. 2000, Hu returned to Taiwan after 10 years stay in Paris, he has focused on geometric abstraction, showing work in many solo and group exhibitions at galleries and major museums.
