AN UNSETTLING FACE TO FACE
Lu Cong was born in Shanghai, China. He immigrated to the United States at the age of 11. Between 2003 and 2007, Lu Cong was recognized by a number of art publications as a notable emerging artist. Since then, he has developed a distinctive look that many has regarded as an original approach to figurative realism. His portraits do not simply capture the physical or emotional likeness of the subject, rather they beckon to establish an authentic engagement – interaction that ensues when one comes face to face with the sensual, the inexplicable, and the unsettling.
