Odd Women – Paintings by Ling Jian

Ling Jian was born in the Shandong Province of China in 1963. He graduated from the Qinghua University Art College and has exhibited his work in Germany, Bangkok, Amsterdam, and Italy. the subjects of his paintings are mostly women, and the longer you look at them, the more disturbing they get. Ling tweaks the symmetry and proportion just enough to make the viewer realize that something is off about these women, but not allowing the viewer to figure out what.
