“Weathering Sands'' captures both the beauty and tragedy of the world during these unsettling and isolating times. While the images capture harmonious water and sand formations, some also portray the contrasting turmoil and anxiety illustrated by bright red, often toxic, algal blooms. From an abstract aerial perspective, Cheng captures the interplay of sand, sediment and algae as the patterns form organically, disperse and regenerate in water over time. By abstracting these vast landscapes with a kind of ethereal intimacy, she explores the feminine sublime in the natural world.
