Artist Spotlight: Qin Tan

A selection of narrative paintings exploring what it means to be human in the present day by Beijing-born, New Jersey-based artist Qin Tan. This particular body of work revolves around symbolic stick men figures or anthropomorphic tools that explore surreal spaces:

“Subjects are often characterized by their accentuated and contorted physical forms that reveal their psychological state of being and desires. These paintings are often staged in a timeless manner, with themes that explore and critique the condition of the modern human and our universal struggles, flaws, and passion.”
