Water - A Photographic Exhibition
Georgia Perimeter College, Clarkston
Featuring work by: Zhou Ning

: Fri, Oct 16, 5pm - 7pm

Since ancient time, water has served as an inspiration for philosophers and artists and as the source of creative expression:

"women are like water, which can dissolve any ideology of man...water can restrain fire and can eliminate the fire-like disaster...water that carries the boat, can also overturn the boat."

The word water is mysterious. Its movement or calmness creates endless opportunities to create emotionally charged images. The artist Zhou Ning grew up in a traditional Chinese culture, and his understanding and interpretation of water are founded in the interpretation of traditional Chinese literature and philosophy. The "waters" in his images were captured in countries around the world, and are of a magic coincidence and discovery.

The expression of his images are abstract, reflect the complexity of the manifestations of human nature, and allow you to sense a context of an eastern philosophy which interflows with western abstract images of the likes of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse...

As you view the images of Zhou Ning, look, contemplate, and internalize the photographs as it flows from his interpretation of the world to yours.
