Jennifer Li's classical style of oil painting is reminiscent of the techniques employed during the Dutch Golden Age, but gives off a decidedly contemporary air. Li's mostly warm palette is full of reds, golds and greens; she works magic to create just the right light. The paintings are sometimes deceptively simple, with the subject caught mid-act, set upon a plain background where light and shadows do the work. Others are captured in the midst of their story. So many of them reveal so much through their eyes.
