Images from Chinese artist Yao Lu present a very familiar scenery. They look like conventional paintings of Chinese landscapes shrouded in mist and flaunting natural beauty. In reality however, these are digitally manipulated images of landfills showing off mounds of rubbish and refuse. The landfills are merely draped in green nets that provide the appearance of vegetation, a belief reinforced by the mist that covers the paintings. Once you see the elements of digital manipulation sink in, the idyllic romantic paintings of nature completely change form.
