Yun-Fei Ji

Yun-Fei Ji

The past and present are inextricably linked in Yun-Fei Ji’s work. Using traditional Song Dynasty landscape painting techniques, with mineral-based inks and watercolors on handmade paper, his paintings and scrolls often explore the effects of environmental engineering and the resulting social upheaval, as well as the repercussions of natural disasters: from the U.S. government’s ineffectual response to Hurricane Katrina to the Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River. Ji combines Chinese symbolism, personal research, and fictional elements to portray his chosen narratives in both satirical and sympathetic ways.
