About the artist

Living and working in Wuhan China, Zha Sai makes prints of technical complexity and stunning beauty. The daughter of a distinguished artist and teacher she continues an ancient tradition with a modern sensibility.

In October 2009 she travels to the United States to exhibit her work and to make connections with artists in the Pacific Northwest.

“Listening to music, such as that of Antonín Dvořák, releases emotions that take my work in unanticipated directions. These feelings, informed by Chinese literary classics and modern art, inspire me to look for thoughtful free and mysterious images that will yield new implied meanings.” –Zha Sai
