Biography

Dr. Koon teaches Chinese and Japanese art history. She was a fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art before taking up her position at the University of Hong Kong. Her research area is Qing paintings, in particular art in early 19th century Guangdong, including elite ink painting, export art and interregional dynamics between artists, traders, scholars and officials. Her book, A Defiant Brush: Su Renshan and the Politics of Painting in Guangdong (2013), examines the work of an unusual artist working at the time of the Opium War. It investigates Guangdong first as a cosmopolitan area where its elite determined a Guangdong identity that fitted into a national narrative then as a place where war leads to questions of what it means to be a socially and morally learned gentleman at this moment of change. Her new project examines issues of copies and replicas as creative acts.
