GUO SHULING 郭淑玲
1986 | China
Early in Guo’s career, her initial work with nature led her to explore the painting ideas of plants. She desires to create fantastical worlds that would inspire people to see nature in a special way. Later on, her dedication to plant forms has expanded to include more elements of nature, such as forest, sky, and water. Often, these forms take on an abstract quality.
She aspires to develop a unique painting language, using color and shape to express how she feels about nature. In addition to her ongoing works and exhibitions of oil painting, she has brought her love of nature, color and imagination to watercolor illustrations for children picture books, introduce art and inspire imagination in young people.
