Traditional Chinese Ink Painting
Yinglei Zhang is known for her poetic and expressive Chinese painting and calligraphy. Her paintings show her deep love of Vermont nature and its landscape. Her new “Trees and Rocks” series were inspired from recent years hiking on the Long Trail. Strength, toughness, and the beauty of aging are articulated in her sensitive depictions of tree roots cradling rocks. Zhang's art is deeply rooted in Chinese poetry and literature. She uses ink and limited color, working on Xuan paper with brush strokes that are both subtle and bold, and both graceful and full of strength.
