  • Artist Statement
    My works in painting, drawing and sculpture come out of a broader enquiry into the nature of invented landscapes. The fabricated worlds I create exist among the constructed realities we live in, and the ideals of a nature we admire from afar. I explore the fractured and unresolved relationship between ourselves and the environment, our individual and societal responses, and our desires associated with them. I trace the use of invented landscapes as a personal refuge and a platform for social critique across Chinese literati painting, traditional and contemporary Romantic painting, urban utopian architectural designs and the spatial constructions in Real Time Strategy computer games.
