Artist Wushuang Tong paints surreal portraits of her two pet lizards gazing out of her high-rise apartment near the Hudson River estuary. Her home boasts abundant natural light and a sweeping view of the Statue of Liberty. "Every day, I see a shining expanse of sea and the sunset like loose silk flying from the edge of the horizon," says Wushuang. After earning a BA at Wuhan University, Wushuang moved to the United States to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and later earned her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In college, she served as the principal cellist in the symphony orchestra, and today, she composes scores for her artworks and performs professionally. She also plays piano and guitar, as well as several folk instruments, such as the cucurbit flute (a Chinese instrument) and dutar (a central Asian string instrument). Her artwork has been exhibited and collected internationally, including in New York, London, Berlin, and Singapore.
