Jing Zhou

Ch'an Mind, Zen Mind Series

Jing Zhou creates visual dialogues between eternity and transience, oneness and variety, existence and emptiness. As a Chinese artist living in the Western world, she utilizes her comprehensive understanding of Chinese philosophies (the prudent and contrary-minded Taoist beliefs, the attached-to-the-earth reality of Confucianism, and the sudden enlightenment and intuitive insights of Zen) delicately balanced with western art, literature, spirituality, and philosophies to describe what is the true nature of beauty and life.
