Today humans have an average lifespan of 30,000 days. This represents the life trajectories marked by a sequence of short and long-term events—sour, sweetness and bitterness. For example, ’Invisible No. 23’ (2015) is rendered in white, black and grey to amplify the intangible sentiments like music transpires the high, middle and low of emotions.
Captivated by the structure and movement of water, Jia Peng strives to project different contents on to the idea of invisibility or emptiness (not the right word) of water—render the invisible within the visible rather than depict external appearances. His multi-layered paintings display both additive and subtractive marks as a way to represent the transition of space or element in nature over time.
Jia Peng (b. 1975, Beijing China) studied at Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’Avignon, France, became a full-time artist and part-time lecturer at China Central Academy of Fine Arts and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts where he teaches painting. He is also a member of La Maison des Artistes (MDA).
