Intersection: International Art and Culture
Arthur M Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology at Peking University, Beijing
27 May – 27 August 2018

Patricia Guzman’s expertly executed realism makes her paintings appear photographic, as she documents faces that attract her sympathy, often closeup

Here, the deep-set eyes of her subject, an elderly man, gaze steadily outward; if you look carefully, you can see a figure reflected in them, which is that of the artist, but it could also stand in for the viewer, who can imagine he or she has been integrated into the painting, held by that unflinching, encompassing regard.
