Demo Deng Shiqing
Born in China / Works in Brooklyn
Demo has that quiet yet piercing stare that looks beyond the appearance of things. While she may seem to utilize elements of traditional paintings like nude figures and drapery, recognizable forms unravel and morph into expressionistic strokes or amorphic masses of color. This way, she navigates moments where psychological realities leak into everyday life, turning it into something wondrously foreign.
You’ll love Demo if you: Are a Pisces. Or, if you find beauty in the dark and ambiguous things in life (it’s not a phase, mom.)
