Xu Hualing 徐華翎
Xu Hualing was born in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province in 1975. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Chinese painting from Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in 2000 and 2003. She continues to work and teach at CAFA in Beijing.
Her paintings of young girls on the cusp of adolescence reclaim the female body narrative from male artists, and explore the tenderness, sensitivities, and psychological vulnerability of this stage of life. Juxtaposing bruises or band-aids with ethereal depictions of the female body point to the collision of expectations, dreams, and potential with life’s realities.
