Lu Peng 's canvases paradoxically portray the contemporary society, particularly the chaotic and bewildering transformation that have characterized China's rise amidst the global market. His canvases are flooded with detail, awash in saturated colours and floating symbols from a confused amalgam of the past and the present. His canvases explore the 'perpetual state of dreaming', that people are in both in their dreams of the past and the visions of the future. This explains the surreal quality of his works where memoirs clash with fantasies and cultural symbols come unhinged, quite literally, from their contexts to become elements of play in the compositions. The paintings are absurd playful depictions which are at once dense yet light.
