Lan Zhaoxing attempts to use the language of painting to express the philosophical realms of spirituality. In her work, she chooses the elements from the two mutable worlds of nature and self, and gives them color and form, trying to make an emotional response and intellectual thinking logically consistent. Lan grew up in the mountains and served in an institution isolated in the mountains during her 10-year service in the military. The mountains pinned her contradictory feelings about the homeland. The works is presented at Between Mountains in Fou Gallery, 2019. Most of the paintings in the exhibition were created in Lishan, Shanxi, and Fujian Fuding. She linked between the real landscape and the art history references to extract a painting language between naturalism and abstraction, attempting to give clarity and balance to order, with both rhythmic musicality and architectural eternity.
