Peng Jian | Gorgeous
Hadrien de Montferrand Gallery is pleased to present “Gorgeous”, Peng Jian’s solo exhibition of ink works. In the present exhibition, Peng Jian delivers more joyous productions depicting books with vibrant colours. He thereby operates a transition from an objective world to more subjective and personal presentations. Peng Jian commences an intimate quest about his routine and inner psyche. The works in the exhibition are stacked books, hidden in boxes and adorned by sundry mementos of the artist’s childhood or toys of his own son. Beyond its circumstantial appearance, the exhibition evokes a kind of harmony, a meditative kind of elegance. Peng Jian is part of the new ink movement whose work was recently exhibited in Hong Kong and the U.S.A. and has become part of private collections in China and Europe.
