About the Artist

As a Chinese immigrant, Dan Jian finds landscape acquires meaning through memories. She transforms the traditional Chinese ink landscape scroll format infusing it with charcoal dust and burned ashes on translucent paper; layers of hand-cut shapes create introverted landscapes filled with narratives and symbols. Imagery pulled from the Texas landscape merges with personal and cultural memory to reference the multiple meanings of home and belonging.
