Lu Cong

Lu Cong’s cultural identity, split between mainland China where he was born in 1978 and small-town Midwest where he immigrated to 11 years later, informs his beautiful portraits mostly of white, American women. The images harken back to old cigarette ads from pre-Communist China, as well as the 18th-century Romantics in the West.

The dynamics of sexuality and romance are probably the most significant in a person’s assimilation or lack thereof in any culture, and Lu’s biography allows him to skirt a delicate line that turns the un-questioned orientalism and the unspoken emasculation of the Asian male on their heads while simultaneously empowering and revering his subjects.
