It is often proffered that apes are our closest genetic counterparts, intelligent and emotionally intuitive. In this work, Weiliang's baboons leer down in a manner that suggests arrogance and distain, while the title of the artwork itself a comical reference to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. In Weiliang's signature style of impastoed strokes and his brilliant colour choice of cobalt blue monkeys, the artist paints a satirical picture where the self-righteousness and arrogance of man is akin to the arguably jocular behavior of apes. The result is not only a visually stunning work of art, but also a subtle jab at the idea of elitism and exclusivity.
