Ying Li, Painting Faculty, Haverford College
Represented by The Painting Center, NYC 

Separated from her family and placed in an internment camp during China’s Cultural Revolution, Li emigrated to the United States in 1983 and her work underwent a major transformation. Franklin Einspruch writes in Art in America “One does not so much enter into the landscapes of Ying Li as collide with them. Brushed impastos accrete on her canvases like minerals on the walls of a cave.”
