Hua Wang’s experimental practice can be seen as a ceramics testing ground as well as aconceptual laboratory that investigates on diverse personal, social and political themes. Part of a generation of Chinese artists who grew up during a period of rapid urbanisation,she said “Gender, hierarchy, there is often more to this matter than meets the eye. My work to me is a surreal interpretation of the imperfect physical world.”

Using a range of different types of clay and methods of making on philosophical ideas such asthe increasing materialism and obsolescence of our society. Hua employs drawing, painting, sculpture and video to echo conditions where family stories and social events are inextricably interwoven into an autobiographical structure.
