Yang Qian (born 1959) creates photorealistic paintings that elicit unexpected sensualities from the banalities of contemporary life. He frequently borrows tropes from Western art history, such as the classic theme of Venus at her toilette, and updates them for a contemporary viewer with modern settings, voyeuristic detail and his ravishing treatment of surface.
