Qu Leilei : A Chinese Artist in Britain
Accompanying an exhibition at the Ashmolean, this book explores the work of the artist, Qu Leilei. Qu Leilei's visual language is well established, and it represents a fusion of east and west, belnding the descriptive, realistic styles of the European Renaissance with Chinese ink painting.
The book explores the broad themes in Qu Leilei's work: a burning interest in the history of China, and what can be learned from it; a loving concern for human beings and their individual achievements; an absorption in the anatomy and depiction of the human body; an urge to warn against the perils of the world; and a heartfelt desire to integrate Chinese and western art practice and techniques.
