Xiaojing Yan's 'Face to Face' ditches the conventional canvas for something more delicate. By painting on delicate silkscreens wrapped in acrylic frames, Yan creates beautiful portraits from photographic images of the same person. Her work has a traditional Chinese aesthetic with a modern touch that accentuates her work.
Xiaojing Yan's work is currently featured in Gladstone Hotel's design event 'Come Up To My Room' in Toronto.
