Catalogue Note

Peng Jian is a graduate of traditional Chinese painting from the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. As a young scholarly painter, he appropriates the ruled-line architectural painting tradition (jiehua) popularized during the Song dynasty in his paintings.  Fascinated by the Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking tradition, Peng applies a rich palette of deeply saturated primary colors to his illustrations of stacked books, hidden boxes and incomplete Rubix cubes.  Following the birth of his son Peng began to routinely visit this subject matter in a personal quest for order and sources of knowledge. Red Volume is an example of the artist’s meticulously crafted composition that appropriates modern still-life subjects as a metaphor for the accumulation of wisdom and symbols of authority.
