Book DescriptionFrom a distance Yun-Fei Ji's traditional brush paintings hearken back to the atmospheric landscapes of the Sung Dynasty painters. Step closer though, and Ji's mists are revealed to be toxic clouds, and his craggy mountains are shown to bepiles of overflowing garbage and abandoned vehicles. His misty imagery also includes stylized abstractions that may or may not refer to intestines, explosions, or bubbling slime. Using traditional materials (inks, Chinese brushes, and handmade mulberry paper) Ji employs age-old methods to illuminate historic and contemporary concerns. This full-color monograph/catalogue includes a new thematic group of six large-scale works made especially for the exhibition. Multi-page gatefolds of these paintings are included. Edited by Shannon Fitzgerald. Essays by Melissa Chiu, Tan Lin and Gregory Volk. Foreword by Paul Ha. Paperback, 7.75 x 9.5 in./95 pgs / 38 color and 28 duotones.
