Lo Chan Peng's works mainly focus on portraits and cover a wide range of media including oil paintings and ink wash. In his works, he often explores issues related to time, history, and the boundaries between life and death. Through his figurative and delicate portraiture, as well as traces of wear and tear, damage, burning, and stains, he brings a powerful visual experience to viewers. In doing so, he transforms abstract concepts such as time and history into visible elements and creates a unique artistic vocabulary. In recent years, his main subjects include "people changed by history," "those who change history," and "light." The main characteristic of his work is the indescribable expression of the figures in his paintings, which are profound and mysterious. Lo Chan Peng believes that this simple purity comes from his life experience and is what all great artists have pursued throughout history.
Markus Åkesson is interested in esoteric spaces, meeting points, vanishing gaps between the hidden and the show, dream and reality, life and death. It is a quest that unfolds before our eyes, a quest for meaning and a search for spiritualities. Then you can't help but think about those faces, that are always hidden from us. Faces that carry the greatest mysteries of mankind, and its most absolute thoughts. Wouldn't they be the object of this research? A painting by Magritte comes to mind, a magnificent kiss from two veiled lovers, an impersonal embrace, universal love. In all these works, hidden behind a succession of mythical motifs, lies human nature and all its secrets.
