Gong Jiang and Jiang Pengyi
Of young Chinese contemporary artists born in the 1980s, the unique styles of Gong Jian and Jiang Pengyi’s works have drawn particular attention from people in the know. Gong Jian’s paintings are colorful and multi-layered. While his early works demonstrate a visual sense of whimsy, recently his paintings have switched focus to engage in the meta-narrative of the visual language of painting and reimaginings of temporality. Jiang Pengyi’s works depict surrealist scenes in a fractured narrative by way of the lens to reveal a life full of doubt, depression and hurt, yet still hopeful of a better world to come.

ALPS has specially invited independent Chinese contemporary art curator Zoe Bing Zhang to bring both early and recent works of these two artists to Hong Kong, discovering their multifaceted aesthetics through paintings, photography and video.
