“Bringing a taste of classicism into the largely modern world of digital painting is my aim,” explains artist Elizabeth Liangzi Wang.
“My inspiration sources from ‘grand style’ portraitists like Anthony Van Dyck, Joshua Reynolds and John Sargent. I paint with graphic programs in a way that’s intensely aware of elements of real oil paint, such as impasto and pigment transparency. The digital world has enabled me to convincingly give my works that historical look — dust, yellowing, craquelure, all of which may take hundreds of years in real life.”
Ms. Wang is one of nine artists that have recently completed the League’s Certificate Program, a dedicated four-year plan of intensive study in the Fine Arts.
