Quality Speaks for Itself: Paintings by Jia Lu
You've got to see it to believe it. Jia Lu emigrated from China to Canada and from Canada to California, where she now resides in Los Angeles. Her website describes her art:
“Just as the Himalayas were once ocean floor, so all things change in an endless cycle,” says the artist. “Life is merely a part of this grand transformation. Yet there is a part of us that continues unchanged through all these changes: a soul, a divine spark, a portion of the eternal we carry within us forever.”

Statement of Intent
I make every effort to credit the sources of information used in this blog and to obtain the permission and cooperation of all the works presented by living artists. I try, as much as possible to use works from public sources eg. national and provincial collections, of deceased artists. If for any reason, any artist disapproves of anything written about them or their work the artist is encouraged to request withdrawal of the content.
