4me4you visits Pilar Corrias Gallery, which featured “The Peak Tower”, by Cui Jie
Pilar Corrias Gallery..>Cui’s meticulously executed images of modernist architectural structures are intended to reflect the rapid transformation of China’s cityscapes in the two decades since the beginning of its accelerated economic liberalisation in the late 1990s.
Cui’s latest series of paintings examine the history of viewing pavilions on the Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. The Victoria Peak is a symbol of power and prosperity. It is the highest hill on the island and the summit of the city’s property market.
