 Cui Feis Manuscript of Nature

Chinese artist Cui Fei makes work with natural materials, like these thorns, which she mounts on paper to mimic the look of calligraphy in a series of works that she calls a Manuscript of Nature.

In response to a continually changing outside world, I seek the underlying essence of our lives, something that is real and permanent, which cannot be altered by social, political, cultural, or geographic conditions. I see nature as consistent and ordered, thus providing a therapeutic agent for healing and harmony in an otherwise chaotic world. I utilize materials found in nature, such as tendrils, leaves and thorns composing a manuscript symbolizing the voiceless messages in nature that are waiting to be discovered and to be heard.
