Half of this album depicts landscapes; the other half depicts insects, birds, and natural subjects. Emanating peace and tranquility, Fan Qi’s landscapes reveal a quiescent vision and luminescence that lends an otherworldliness to his images. His insects and birds show his attention to minutiae and technical facility in the control of the brush.
