Mok Yat-san’s new works take on the concept of Chinese landscape paintings and theory. The distant mountain one often considers when looking at a Chinese scroll becomes a solitary formation under Mok’s vision. Cast in stainless steel or other “hard” medium, Mok brings out the substantiality of the formation despite their miniature size. While the ancient considers the mountain sacred, Mok makes it shimmering with glitz and metallic gloss, as if trying to reverse the orthodox view of nature. Looking at these sculptures from afar, they are no different than the real landscape behind, or, in this case, of one’s mind.
