Artist in Focus | DONNA ZHANG   zhang-portrait


Starting with an ecological trip to Tibet in 1999, Donna Zhang came into close contact with the country’s indigenous peoples. She was deeply moved by the immediacy and warmth of her interactions, which stood in marked contrast to the reservedness of many urban cultures. Her experiences in Tibet inspired Donna’s work in portraiture, which reflects better than words ever could the profound beauty and resilience she sees in the faces of her subjects. As Donna says simply, “Their clothes are not clean, but their hearts are pure.”
