Peng Ke (b. 1992, Changsha, Hunan) is a artist based in Shanghai and Los Angeles.
Peng primarily uses analog photography to create images particular to experiences in rapidly developing
cities across China. She depicts private situations and public environments - focusing on formal
quirks and intuitive patterns of behaviors influenced by the diverse material and media that surrounds us.
Her practice moves beyond the genre of ‘straight photography’, drawing attention to the feeling of
living in a city unmoored by dra-matic changes, but also looking to unexpected languages that happen
when different reali-ties coalesce together to create a new logic within the frame. Peng also looks to
preco-cious moments, where the complexity of this world can be found translated into a child-like economy
of visual languages, shapes, colors and signs.
