Thick outlines and varying colour schemes bring this work a expressionistic style and vivid life. Backgrounds swirl and figures stare out or recline in intensely atmospheric rooms. The paintings of Helene Sutin and Qian Chong are both technically skillful and emotionally alive. Portraits fizzle with human intensity and eyes glaze over in saddness or bliss. Backgrounds bring an added layer of feeling as the palette and textures combine beautifully. The famous image of Mao is re-imagined in a unique style and given a modern twist. Powerful art from a promising artist.
