"allusions to Chinese calligraphy connect with a subtle use of mixed media, resulting in a work that is both historical and immediate."

Zelene Jiang Schlosberg is a visual artist concerned with the aesthetics of  fragility and the meditative power of imagery. Her art mingles Western and Eastern elements, including allusions to Chinese calligraphy and a special fondness for contemporary classical music.

 

NUE Magazine featured and published Zelene's work and essay in its Fall 2015 edition. In a preview of that edition, the magazine commented that Zelene "uses line to express multitudes in her complex mixed media paintings." Zelene's work "Hint" was featured in Studio Visit Magazine volume 31, juried by Mary M. Tinti, Curator at The Fitchburg Art Museum in Massachusetts. She has also participated in multiple group shows, and held a solo exhibition at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2012. She was one of the featured artists at CICA Museum (South Korea), in an international exhibition held in May 2019.

 

Her work has also gained a foothold in the new music community. She was the solo featured visual artist in CHICAGO: An Artist Celebration (2015), curated by the Chicago Arts Orchestra, and the Grammy- nominated Spektral Quartet chose a painting of hers for a musical improvisation in 2018. Her painting “Directions #0” was featured on the cover of composer John Liberatore's 2018 debut album, "Line Drawings” (Albany Records).

She is represented by Woldt Gallery, London.
