Out of the Pandemic
Masterworks Created in the Wuhan Lockdown
April 1 — June 30 - 2nd Floor, Quent Cordair Fine Art, Jackson, WY
Han Wu Shen, a native of Wuhan, China, was caught in the city’s COVID-19 lockdown last January, when he and his wife were visiting family for the Chinese New Year. Unable to return to his home in the U.S. for eleven months, the artist persisted in his work despite the horrors and distractions around him. Shen’s unbroken dedication and focus through the worst of the pandemic is a testament to the artist’s determination, fortitude of spirit, and a recognition of the invaluableness of art, all the more acutely in such difficult times, not only to those of his native community, but to patrons and connoisseurs around the world.
The six original oils created by Han Wu Shen during the Wuhan lockdown are currently on exhibit at Quent Cordair Fine Art, in Jackson, Wyoming. The gallery holds that, especially in the face of rising bigotry, threats, and violence against Asians in general and Asian-Americans in particular, justice is served in championing artists and art that reveal and illuminate the commonalities and shared essence of each and every individual, no matter one’s race, place of birth, or the cultural or political context into which one is born. The gallery celebrates Shen’s masterful work as he continues to lift the curtains of difference and circumstance to reveal his subjects’ universally recognizable cares and concerns, joys and passions, hopes and longings.
