[Art Exhibition] Deconstructing Landscape –Visual Arts by Li Huai
Deconstructing Landscape –Visual Arts by Li Huai
“Formally trained as a filmmaker, I have always had a strong interest in the fluidity of images and the possibility of multiple interpretations of visual elements. In this exhibition I continue to give play to my curiosity by constructing specific forms, symbols, repetitions, and positions, and by exploring the ways in which images can be manipulated and interchanged. My goal is to challenge the preconceptions of viewers.” -Li Huai
