As we walk what we are actually doing is falling yet we walk, unaware of this fact. Walking upright we are separated from the apes, still as we walk we remain unconscious of the process - paraphrased concept by Sorren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) within 'Repetition and Philosophical Crumbs'.

History marks the “walking of time” – as we are unaware of falling as we are walking so too we are unaware of the subtle and subliminal influences of the past on our present.

This is Jin Nan Deng’s first exhibition in the southern hemisphere and with the eight works in oil, Deng looks toward the past within the present and in this he offers us solace and hope in the possibilities of the future.

Jin Nan Deng was born in Beijing, China in 1953. He is a member of CAA (Chinese Artist Association) He is co-director of Fine Art for East China Normal University. Deng gained his MFA at the University of Helsinki. Many of his works are held in private collections in Shanghai, Finland, Germany, Japan, Helsinki, Beijing and the United States and he has exhibited in group and solo shows around the world.

Open Tuesday - Saturday 10:30am - 4:30pm with private viewings by appointment.
