"In my eyes, these paintings only relate to beauty, not to sex. If focusing on sex itself, it is impossible to paint anything," said Peng.

And Peng also put her copied letters and paintings that seemingly have no relation together in her series, "Remote Letters".

Featuring landscapes and figures, the series is a combination of the Western and the Oriental, picturing a modern story under the cover of traditional Chinese ink painting.

In one work, Father and Me, Peng painted a boy and his father in ancient Chinese clothes walking through the mountains. A copy of a letter from Ludwig Van Beethoven to his father was attached.

"This painting is based on my experience. My father once accompanied me to attend many examinations. I pictured the child as a boy on purpose, for when I was young I often thought I was a boy," laughed Peng.
