Boston digital painter Yanjun Cheng creates stunning and
intense portraits of ladies who reel the viewer in with their mesmerizing
expressions, sometimes seductive, sometimes entirely caught in a world all
their own. Other paintings allude to the masters of old, but with a clearly
modern and digital signature that reminds of snapshot photography and glitching
screens. Cheng’s photorealism combined with her use of dashes of bright color
makes for an interesting mixture.
