Ronchini is proud to host ZONE, the first UK solo exhibition of Chinese, British based artist Edward Hongyi JIA. With a predominance of green shades and an intentionally impressionistic styled brushwork, Hongyi JIA shows a sophisticated approach towards exploring the relationship between humans, nature, and technology. These subversive landscapes physically engulf the viewer with their dominating size, presenting an intricate and paradoxical conflict within our perception of the artificial and the natural.
