Lu Cong

The viewer may initially read these paintings as photographs, and then notice the painting technique behind the production of the image. While I am not a big fan of photorealism, these beautiful works incorporate the artist's individual hand and vision through subtle stylisation. Lu Cong subverts photorealism through barely perceptible distortions.
