An exhibition of new sculptures by Kirsteen Pieterse. Inspired by the Shan-shui ("mountain-water") school of Chinese painting, these sculptures represent natural mountainous landscapes traditionally painted enshrouded in mist and cloud. Since ancient times the scholar stone has been considered a spiritual condensation of the vital essence of the landscape, representing a world in miniature. By having stones in their studios, Eastern scholars would get intimately close to nature and wander through mountains.
