La Lanta Gallery Presents Lu Jun’s Digital Ink & Wash Photographs

The La Lanta Gallery presents Lu Jun’s Digital Ink & Wash Photographs, on view through June 29.

A recipient of 2009 Florence Biennale’s Gold Prize in Photography, Lu Jun’s genre-blending technique has earned him recognition in innumerable international art magazines including Art Manager, Chinese Photography, Art Gallery, and Britain’s Genius List of 100 Top International Artists.

Lu Jun’s work takes its cue from one of China’s most well-known art forms — traditional landscape painting — but his process is wholly contemporary. His photography is “digital ink and wash.” First he patiently observes the movement of ink in water, as it flows into strands of varying ebbs and flows. Water will always find a natural course, unguided and unforced. Lu Jun photographs the paths of the ink with a camera. Then, through digital manipulation, he carefully gathers strands from each image to weave into a new form. Through this process, the ink becomes both the subject and the medium.
