The monumental landscapes of the Northern Song dynasty inspired Li Huayi to forge a unique personal style. Forgoing the panoramic landscape of the Northern Song, however, Li deconstructs the elements and recombines them into an abstract scene in which details are amplified.

The crystalline details of the boulders suggest a microcosm, while the dark, deep creases in the upper center draw the viewer into a mysterious macro-realm.
