Red Gate is pleased to present a new series of paintings, prints and sculptures by Lv Peng. Painting in a signature style that is derived from the traditional precise ‘gong-bi’ technique, Lv creates a universe of head-on collision and coexistence with multiple personages from days of yore and today. Using a highly complex and constructed composition coupled with an uncanny play on scale and proportion, Lv’s works are like a labyrinth of visual symbols and the narrative is at once surreal and sensual to the viewer. In the painting “Bamboo and Plum Blossoms” the main character enters a literati scholar garden of bamboo and blossoms to discover a Lilliputian universe with an intertwined couple emerging from classical erotic paintings as suggested by the lady in bound feet. Lv also injects whimsy by way of an eclectic mix of fashion, combining the nostalgic Mao suit with Pu-Yi tainted round glasses and a bob haircut on the principal personage. The dramatic atmosphere is enhanced by theatrical red curtains being drawn on each side of the painting. In the world of Lv Peng’s art, there is a concerted and chaotic mélange of people and place that seems to rhyme with the current change and pace of China.

Where is ‘home’? Does an adopted one matter? Who’s adopting whom? In these eleven richly varied stories, set in and around a Beijing railway station, in a downtown Toronto neighborhood, in Berlin and Buchenwald, in England and in Romania, Fatty Goes to China explores the precarious lives of an accident-prone Chinese construction worker with a dark and violent secret, a Romanian carpenter with a ‘deathcamp hangover’ who finds that his teddy-bear named ‘Seriously’ is his harshest critic, a fatally ill Canadian artist who remains in Beijing after the 2008 Olympics and develops a surprising friendship, a teenaged KFC waitress who is tricked by an American student, a malingering heir who visits his childhood home in England for “the shoebox,” a grieving barber who, after risking his life, makes a gruesome discovery about his Czech lover, and a Chinese couple who make a shocking, last-minute decision about their adoptive child. Written in original, humorous, and innovative ways, these unforgettable narratives expose the risks in finding shelter in unaccommodating places.

Red Gate is pleased to present new works by Chen Wenling at The Opposite House, Beijing. Chen Wenling's distinctive sculptures evoke an intensity that reflects his own life-embracing personality and unflinching look at his environment. During a visit to his home village, the artist was inspired by the carefree and innocent children playing in the countryside which led to his now famous Red Memory series. This breakthrough body of work with sinewy boys drenched in his signature fire-engine car duco red is a testament of the artist's fiery attitude towards life. The glossy figures with an emboldened blend of cheeky expressions and arresting poses is a celebratory call to embrace the inner child in every viewer.
