Luo Jie

Chinese, b. 1968

BACK

In Chinese philosophy, it is understood that emptying oneself can leave behind a painful experience. Hence purification leads to salvation. Luo Jie finds his redemption through a laborious process of painting. Inter­estingly, Luo's life echoes the tragic course that his father's life took. His obligations towards his family for a time pre­vented him from pursuing his artistic career; a nagging feeling of failure led him to despair. Only after his father's death could Luo resume his haunting art and seize upon it full-time as the vocation he knew it to be. 

Luo Jie is famous for his "Imprisoned" series, painting men with entangled ropes, which represent his suffering and loss as Luo's course of life echoes the tragedy of his father.

 

Has had exhibited internationally includ­ing Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Ma­laysia, Netherlands, etc.

 

Has been chosen to exhibit his paintings at the recognized Venice Biennale in June, 2013.

 

His public collections include Yuangong Art Museum and Qinghe Art Museum.

 

Had a promising auction record of HK$302,400 set at an auction.
