    Gold in Fine Art / Abstract

Thoughts of relativity have germinated in my mind for a long time. The paths of "Seen" and "Unseen" are pre-existent. There is an interacting cause and effect and it is of a contradictory unity. It invariably transforms itself into its reverse aspects. "Seen" are the diversified colors that imply our changeable world; "Unseen" are the things which hide beneath the surface of daily life that we should have known and will have to find out. We attempt to avoid viewing and treating things subjectively so that our perspective will be broadened. Thus, multiple perspectives might emerge in our minds.

Zhou Peng was born and raised in Shanghai. He trained as an oil painter in his early age, and he turned to commercial photography after graduating from Shanghai Theater Academy. Meanwhile, Peng had been keeping the passion for art photography. He is studying in major of M.F.A photography at Savannah College of Art and Design. Peng’s central inspiration came from Chinese philosophy, and his photos also combined with Western painting and Chinese classic aesthetic notions. He is exploring in search of new ways of thinking and making art by fusing multiple concepts into semi-abstract photo series.
