“The Journey of a Promise – Oil Paintings by Pang Jiun”, an exhibition showcasing the creative process over the last 60 years of a man considered to be one of the great masters of Chinese oil painting. Pang has long been hailed as the Qi Baishi of oil painting. Employing a style that recalls both Fauvism and the poetic feeling of Chinese ink painting, Pang uses tones of grey to depict misty scenery in his works, most of which are landscapes, still lifes and human figures. Now, in addition to displaying some of his greatest paintings from the past, Hongkong Land has the great honour of having Mr Pang create new artworks for this upcoming exhibition, with paintings featuring Hong Kong themes rendered in his distinctive east-meets-west artistic style.
On a mission to change the belief that “oil paintings don’t belong to the Chinese”, Pang’s decades-long career has been marked by an obsession to create oil on canvases with Chinese characteristics. “The Journey of a Promise – Oil Paintings by Pang Jiun” features over 30 masterworks created by Pang at various periods and places, all displayed within a venue designed to reflect traditional Chinese landscape gardening. Presented with vistas streaming through classical lattice work and oil paintings hanging on an array of white Chinese garden walls, visitors find themselves steeped in the scenery of a literati garden.
