Jing Jing Luo is a self taught calligrapher and artist from Beijing who integrates visual and audio art through painting and music. Her unique Ink Brush Calligraphy Art Work uses mostly one stroke of ink or paint on her handcrafted parchment or Japanese Rice Paper. This use of one stroke, or “Zen” stroke, is a centuries old technique in the Asian countries of Japan and China. Jing Jing brings a special Eastern Art tradition to Beck Center for the Arts.
You will also enjoy one of Jing Jing’s music compositions, “Cercle de la lune”, relating to her art pieces. The concert will be performed by esteemed Oberlin faculty member and pianist Haewon Song and violinist Clara Shannon along with the Oberlin String Quartet.
Jing Jing served on the faculty of Oberlin’s Conservatory of Music as a composer, as well as teaching art at a number of institutions. Paul Sykes, International Art Curator for Beck Center, is returning with this second in a series of Asian art exhibits featuring Jing Jing.
