Details

Jia Lu has held more than two hundred exhibitions of her highly detailed figurative paintings since moving from China to North America in 1983. Yet no full-color collection of her work has been available until this fine volume. Filled with beautiful Asian women, both nudes and in exotic, beautiful costumes, this is a study of Asian beauty and superlative painting technique, reminding us of the work of Steven Hanks.

Illuminated collects 106 oil paintings completed between 2002 and 2007, as Jia Lu continues her exploration of the human body. Drawing the viewer into a world of radiance and refinement, her ethereal paintings capture the transience of physical beauty, blending realism of form with the spirit and wisdom of her subjects. One hundred and fifty-nine color plates, including forty-three full-page color details, are accompanied by Jia Lu's reflections on her work and insights into her life as an artist.

She is a master of lighting, of radiant white skin, of brilliant colors such as seen on the cover. She paints haunting beauty, exploring Asian women and some customs, as well as costume and even fantasy themes of flying and sword-battle.
