Karst is a 3D artwork that creates a liminal space in between the representational and the theatrical, the limited and the multi-dimensional, and the abstract and the real. The work is inspired by Snow Yunxue Fu's personal childhood experiences of visiting the caves in her hometown in Southwest China. The memories and the impact of those experiences are still quite vivid, where the space feels both claustrophobic and expansive.

With a background in painting, Fu remains the youngest artist collected by the National Art Museum of China.
