Wen Wu's First Step showcase exhibition '13 Portrait of Lin Dai' featured her oil paintings which were reinterpretations of photographs of the famous Hong Kong actress, Lin Dai. The artist chose representations of the actress from different stages in her life to show her as the 'strong minded individual she was'. The works continued the artist's exploration of pop culture and the ambiguity inherent in relationships between photography, reality, and painted representations.
The exhibition was part of the Creative Diversity: Greater Manchester (CD:GM) project.
