HdM GALLERY, London is proud to present ‘Floating Dawn’, a solo exhibition of the work of Chinese Contemporary Artist Peng Jian. Tis will be the artist’s inaugural exhibition in London and his second solo exhibition with HdM Gallery. Te exhibition will open on Tursday 16th August, and will showcase both works on paper and an installation.

Regarded as a key representative artist of the New Ink Painting Movement,Peng Jian’s works amalgamate the traditional and the contemporary. Employing and developing the ancient method known as ‘boundary painting’ in form,his works are both detailed and rigorously precise. Captivated by the Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking tradition, his bold and vibrant use of colour takes its infuence from traditional Chinese heavy-colour painting and Japanese woodblock print. Utilising a aturated palette of primary colours, the artist’s illustrations are a rich labyrinth of stacked books, boxes and Rubix cubes. Using representational fgures to express abstract consciousness, Peng Jian’s works createtheir own unique visual aesthetic – a complexity of emotion underlying simplifed imagery. With the gradual disappearance of traditional Chinese painting techniques, Peng Jian’s works represent a contemporary interpretation of traditional methods.
