REN JING
b. 1975, Anhui, China. Lives and works in Beijing, China.

Ren Jing is an introspective and sensitive painter. With a strong focus on the existence of life and the relationship of time and space, Ren Jing believes that there are multiple causes for any incident, likewise, each viewer bears their own history and corresponding viewpoints when they interpret the work. Therefore, he chooses to step behind the visual incident and tell a story without judgment or criticism. This is reflected in his choice of subject matter: vets, slaughterhouse-men and ambulance-men, dealing with both life and death. He has chosen some of the most ordinary moments to present the uncertainty and helplessness of life as a way to prove of existence of life. The paintings are like patches of images, dividing up a realistic scene; bright yellow lines are like blades cutting through the murky surface, intruding into the original visual.

Artists Ren Jing and Xiao Zheluo represent a new generation of artists in China whose works are deeply introspective. They relay both sensitivity and sincerity to their environment and those around them. Somehow their works are brief solitary insights that evoke rich emotional states of being within a contemporary world as well as their lives in current day China. Highly personal and intimate are their works and of exceptional technique, we are proud to exhibit their first show in Hong Kong.
