In 2016, I traveled to South China to view the majestic, prehistoric karst landscape. The South China karst region is a Unesco World Heritage site - a designation noting its biodiversity, evolutionary significance, and range of karst landforms. Karst mountains are formed as acidic waters dissolve the limestone bedrock, creating spiky mountains, underground rivers, tunnels, and caves. As a landscape painter, I was eager to see these strange formations. Cruising down the Li River on a riverboat filled with tourists, I was not disappointed. The karst mountains were like nothing I had ever seen. With a nod to Eastern scroll painting, my karst paintings explore this magical landscape.
