Lot description
"Dumped Garbage-Relax No. 26" (2010) is a stunning, large-scale oil painting of a beautiful, young Chinese woman painted against sapphire blue velvet curtains as if on stage, whose overtly seductive manner of dress is balanced by her naive, dream-like gaze. Her cropped, blond hair morphs into a paper bag that empties a surreal assortment of objects into the scene, a dynamic visual metaphor for the pressure and 'garbage' that fills the minds of young women today. As a female artist, He Hongbei is extremely conscious of her femininity, as well as the issues that face women in today's contemporary society. This painting measures an impressive 79 x 65 inches (200 x 165 cm) and is in excellent condition.

He Hongbei (China, b. 1969) received her degree from the affiliated High School of the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, Chongqing in 1988,
and in 1992 graduated from the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, China. She has recently returned to live and work in China after 10 years living in the United States. She has shown her work globally with notable solo and group exhibitions including the seminal 2009 solo exhibition "Dumped Garbage" Beijing Zhou Gallery, Beijing, China as well as her US solo at Noel Gallery, Charlotte, NC, USA . Selected group exhibitions include her 2008 ’Chinese Art group Exhibition’, Zurich, Switzerland. The artist has been awarded in 2002 "Annual Art Exhibition-Best of Show", Parimus, NJ, USA and again at "The First Biennial Exhibition of Arts" Guangzhou, China.
