Born in China in 1948, Kuo arrived in Australia in 1963 and studied at the National Art School, graduating in 1972. His artistic inheritance is embedded in abstraction but influenced by his cultural heritage and the influences of Chinese calligraphy and philosophy. Kuo's work has long been described by critics and arts writers as being located at an intersection of Western art traditions and methods with Eastern philosophies and sensibilities, reflecting his preoccupation with effecting an aesthetic reconciliation between the Western abstract sensibility and a uniquely Chinese form of calligraphic mark-making, through a visual language of gestural, lyrical abstraction.
