Galerie Ora-Ora is excited to announce our participation in the second edition of Art Basel Hong Kong. This year, we are proud to present renowned Chinese ink artist, Peng Wei, at the fair.

In “Letters from a Distance”, Peng Wei will incorporate three different series of her artworks, transforming Art Basel’s space into a literary expedition for the audience. Known for her immense detail and precise artistry in her shan shui (“landscape”) paintings, Peng uses “tradition” as medium rather than a standard. In Peng’s “Handmade Book” series, she features one of China’s most ancient and enduring customs of bookbinding and scroll painting. However, unlike her fellow literati who painted shan shui with the desire to capture nature, Peng’s fascination is the object of the ancient books and scrolls themselves. As a result, Peng captures the essence of these classical objects as an entirety, transforming each scroll and book into an artwork itself and not just the paintings within. Choosing not to focus on the restrictive nature and traditions of shan shui painting, Peng instead revives tradition, creating a balance between the past and present within her artworks.
