Chunqing Huang’s “Painter’s Portraits” are abstract. There are similarities and affinities among the works, but no two paintings are alike. The titles indicate which painter is portrayed: Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne or Marcel Duchamp, to name just a few. Chunqing Huang thus probes the very nature of painting, deciphering the DNA inherent in the works of the painters she portrays, condensing it into a single image.
