I Have never been to the place/Lan Zhaoxing兰昭行,我没有去过的地方
23.03.30 -- 23.05.10

This series of works was created by Lan Zhaoxing in the summer of 2017-2019. The reason was that at that time, people in Moments posted many travel photos, all of which were places the artist had never been. These places are pictures of undulating planes, without people, quiet and strange, which will make people have a lot of associations and reveries about each place, so I chose some pictures from them, and there is no need to know and explore The names of their specific geographical locations, I only know that they have never been to and are far away. In addition, she also found a few places in the book that she likes but has never been. Lan Zhaoxing, who loves arranging lines, basically draws these works with point pens, gel pens and oil pastels, and the last four are oil paintings.
