Summary note:
"In his stunning impressionistic works, Yun-Fei Ji takes on the thousand-year-old practice of Chinese scroll painting, employing ink on paper as his primary medium, and landscape as his central subject. Rather than adopting the idealism characteristic of traditional scroll painting, Ji presents the gritty reality of life in contemporary China. In this comprehensive monograph, Ji's works bridge the gap between modernity and tradition. Essays explore themes of community dislocation, and environmental degradation as well as Chinese folklore and its rapid decline in his native country's culture"-- Provided by publisher.
Notes:
"Published in conjunction with the exhibition Yun-Fei Ji: The Intimate Universe."
