Artificial Rock #71 and #86 are abstract sculptures inspired by The Scholar’s Rock, which has for generations been held in high regard in China for its complexity and beauty. However, Zhan’s Artificial Rocks are highly reflective, allowing them to capture the rapid changes of their contemporary surroundings. Zhan’s mirror-like abstract rocks are not detached from the greenery, places of quiet contemplation, and modern buildings that surround them. In fact, their reflective surfaces embody the ever-changing views and developments around them.
