Zheng Chong-Xiao
Paintings with a re-examination and reflection of modern civilization

His oil paintings often adopt the structure of traditional and renowned Chinese landscape paintings as the background, but reinterpret them by employing future technological products such as renewable energy, robots and flying machines, attempting to seek a balance between nature and technology in the transition of time and space. Zheng shows concerns with the relations of human, with machine and environment, so he uses recycled canvas to produce his works. His straightforward narrative style leads viewers to appreciate his landscape while thinking about the future symbiosis between the development of civilization and the environment.
