Artist's Statement

Christopher K. Ho’s 2010 solo exhibition Regional Painting involved living in a shed covered in license plates for a year in the mountains. The recourse to a romantic tradition was both an earnest attempt to rediscover painting and a response to the self-imposed limitations of conventional critical art. In addition to the sojourn itself, the exhibition included paintings by Hirsch E.P. Rothko (an anagram of Christopher K. Ho) and a semi-fictional memoir published as a pocket paperback.


Christopher K. Ho (b. 1974 Hong Kong) is a New York-based artist. He has had solo shows at Winkleman Gallery in New York and Galeria EDS in Mexico City. His work was included in the 2009 Incheon Biennale, the 2009 Chinese Biennial, the 2008 Busan Biennial, and in group exhibitions at the Queens Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, and at MASSMoCA at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens. He received his B.F.A. and B.S. from Cornell University and his M.Phil from Columbia University.
