The Prisoner of Book No.5 2014 oil on paper
Pace Gallery is now launching in Hong Kong with a new office, bringing one of the most famous Chinese contemporary artist Zhang Xiaogang’s latest oil on paper works to constitute its inaugural show in May.
The paintings of Zhang Xiaogang stem from his individual experience and memory. He utilizes narrative scenes to express his own personal history, story and emotional sensibility. His point of origin draws from the dialectic between history and reality, culture and society, collective memory and personal recollections, respectively, to advance his compositional aesthetic. This time the artist used the formality of oil painting on paper, integrating the Western notion of Surrealism with the Eastern conception of classical art. The work is full of imagination and mystery, his subtle artistry on paper reflecting the zenith of skill.
