Lot Essay

The desire scenery in Qin Feng’s mind reflects his childhood memory. In the vast landscape of Xinjiang where he was born and grew up, Qin Feng remembers the sky and the land, the climate, and the creatures that thrive under this unique place that is endowed with beautiful natural wonders and an amalgamation of cultures and ethnicities. His “scenery” does not reproduce a real scene or landscape, but is a realm of imagination. Character-like symbols are the most recurrent theme in Qin’s works. His calligraphic lines evoke notions of desire, longing, touch, and sometimes brute power that enables him to create works in enormous scale.
