SI JIE LOO
Si Jie Loo is a Malaysian born artist working in Santa Barbara. After graduating from Dartmouth with a Studio Art Major, she returned to Malaysia and travelled to China on a travel grant to “merge” her western art education with her Chinese traditional roots in Calligraphy and Ink Painting. With her unique ability to translate cultures visually, she hopes to put a contemporary spin of abstract expressions on chinese ink painting.
Her pieces honor the process of spontaneous, intuitive painting combined with a thoughtful balancing act of ink and colors. The interactions of ink and colors show the dualities present in our natural environment: rising and descending energy, movement and stillness, heaven and earth, constant change and steady passing of time in our lives.
