Jingjing Luo

Jingjing Luo

Luo, Jing Jing is a self-taught visual artist since a child. She moved to the US from Beijing nearly a decade ago. Her vivid complexes of memories exist, vanish, and then reappear, ancient and yet modern, transformed yet the same.

These memories result from a dark, intimate, distorted and spatial equilibrium that are reflected in each work. The feelings of simplicity and unfinished fluidity echoes in from both her cultural backgrounds which revolves around the flowing traces spontaneously, stimulating the strokes, colors and textures in the paintings, the flowing motion creating ongoing waves one after another, each unfolding with new possibilities, increasing the capacity to evoke much deeper and various associations and interpretations in the mind of the viewer. Luo's work celebrates the beauty of death and birth that is presented in the invisible energy of nature.

Jing Jing has a very well established music career as a highly awarded composer in today's music world.

Saatchi Art, and The Carlos Reid Gallery.Com, The Patron Art and The Big Cartel.Com represent Luo's Artwork's and the sale.

Jing Jing holds a master and a PhD degree in Music composition, a second master degree in education from Columbia University, The Juilliard School, Stony Brook University, New England Conservatory of Music and Cleveland State University.

Jing Jing lives and works in Oberlin, Ohio. USA
