their paintings, in the country where the artists had actually lived.

her own style.

à propos

 

       

Zhongli Jin

  A painting greater than the subject itself.
  Paper, water, watercolour and the Chinese paint brush, the qi. Before anything else,
  the qi.
 

What's the point of showing, writing, describing ?

  Nature, omnipresent, fades away, and then builds itself back up again, with great
  sensitivity, combined with oriental savoir-faire.
