The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About -

Guo Jian cre­ates in­tri­cately de­tailed pho­to­graphic col­lages that por­tray tran­quil land­scapes, re­li­gious icons and an­i­mals based on tra­di­tional Chi­nese paint­ings. These paint­ings have a com­mand­ing pres­ence; the works are un­der­pinned by a va­ri­ety of clip­pings ex­tracted from the ex­ces­sive trash found on streets across China. Jian seeks to bring into fo­cus the en­vi­ron­men­tal and cul­tural de­cay China is head­ing to­wards at a star­tling pace. Art Atrium, 181 Old South Head Road, Bondi Junc­tion.
