Pang Yun (庞云) is a Chongqing-based artist born 1975 in Chongqing. Her works of oil on canvas inspire quiet reflection and a sense of resolute control with detailed and technically precise brushstrokes. Her latest series “Portrait of Trees” is inspired by the natural order and structure of trees with their upward-reaching illimitable branches that stand still and tranquil against surrounding storms. At once earthly, grounded, and spiritually transcendent, her style of painting offers a freedom from tension based on the power and serenity of the natural world. With an atmosphere akin to meditation, Pang Yun layers canvases with an abundance of repetitive yet expressive strokes.
