Portfolio > Karst

In 2016, I traveled to southern China and visited the Guilin region, home of the prehistoric Karst mountains. These mountains are formed as acidic waters dissolve the limestone bedrock, creating spiky mountains, underground rivers, tunnels and caves. Chinese artists, particularly during the Tang dynasty, referenced the landscape not to reproduce it but to convey an atmosphere of nature. Their paintings also represented an escape from the chaos of a failing dynasty to the sanctuary of an imagined natural world. Today the Karst Mountains in Southern China are recognized as a world heritage site. As I traveled down the Li River, I too was captivated by this strange and bewitching landscape.
