Jessica Deng
Chinese ink and wash can express the spirit of an epoch. My work is an expression of my sense of our time, especially my series “Women of the Tang Dynasty” which is expression of the role Chinese woman may play in contemporary Chinese society.
I was born in China and my artistic foundations were founded in that culture. I have studied under Yamato Sensei and Master Wu Yi Sang, but while living in Canada, “western” artistic influences have found a way into my oeuvre and this hybrid spirit I feel I have captured in my ink wash paintings. I have shown in numerous exhibitions in the greater Toronto Area and am also an Artist Educator certified by the Royal Conservatory of music
