Wang Fengge graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing (CAFA) and paints subdued, nearly monochromatic canvases that hover on the border between realism and abstraction. While she admits to being deeply responsive to the profundities of traditional Chinese brush and ink painting, she chooses to paint details of buildings, landscapes and modern urban life which she reduces to nearly abstract configurations. Her striking paintings derive their energy from the tonal relationship between multiple layers of closely related hues applied with extraordinary precision.
