Statement

ZHEN GUO

is part of a generation of talent which emerged from China after the death of Mao Tsetong, creating art distinctly Chinese while hungrily absorbing artistic influences from the West.

After graduation from China Fine Arts College, China’s most prestigious art school, Zhen became the first woman appointed a professor to that school in her major since the Cultural Revolution.  

Zhen immigrated to the United States in 1986. Her art has matured in the U.S and migrated from the optimistic vision of her youth to focus on the nexus of emotions and the effort of women as they seek their place in the world. She finds inspiration in themes as divergent as the death of a parent and human or natural disasters, from personal experience to major events affecting the human race.

Zhen Guo’s art has been auctioned at Sotheby’s and Poly International and is exhibited throughout the U.S. and in Japan and China.  She lives and paints on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
