This work is one of six in the series 'The Principles of Ch'i', completed after the artist's training in traditional landscape painting in Guangzhou, China in 1995. The digital collage consists of urban landscape photographs taken of Chinese cities by the artist, assembled to conform with the artist's freshly learned principles of fan compositions.
