Zhen Guo presents a view of the world that is at once expansive and frightening. The images present a landscape as if from 36,000 feet, muted by both the gray color and the distance. Mountains, lakes, a sheer rock face wall, caldera, fields of snow, high and pointed peaks and rivers are joined and blended but not in the places or ways we expect. It is as if our vision of the natural world has been stirred, shaken, kneaded and merged.
We are entranced and at the same time afraid that, if we landed, there we could not find our way out.
