This painting always catches my eye when I enter the gallery. The woman is depicted so elegantly with her silver dress and her pose. I also like how everything in the painting is symbolic, like the plant the woman is stepping on. It’s like a puzzle trying to figure out what the details mean.Yijun Qian, who graduated in December 2016 with a master’s degree in engineering management.
