Fu Xiaotong’s Intricate Landscapes

For centuries Chinese artist over time have depicted the cultural landscape in their works showcasing China’s land in a way that does it justice. Artist Fu Xiaotong continues this long tradition in her own unique way. Using a single tony needle and  large pieces of paper, Xiaotong uses the needle as a pen poking holes into the paper in the same manner as pointillism. Poking the paper with the need hundreds and thousands of times to create a monochromatic  version of the tradition of Chinese landscapes. After She had completed a drawing, she then names the artworks based the number of time she has pierced the paper which can go up to 700,000 times. The interesting thing I found about her work is that while the images are flat, when she is finished it almost as though she managed to make the forms in the drawings looks raised.
