shan shui

Unique hand-pulled Polaroids in which long-expired chemicals are manipulated to reveal evocative landscapes and cloudscapes reminiscent of Classical Chinese Shan Shui paintings, which did not aim to depict the realistic appearance of nature but rather capture its essence and rhythm, and ultimately express the artist’s inner landscape.

Shan Shui #1 - #6 are available from Gallery 1/1 in San Jose, which specializes in unique photographic prints in editions of one. Take a look here.

Shan Shui #7 and #8 are currently on exhibit at (and available from) Sparks Gallery in San Diego.
