Jia Lus works include Chineseink paintings, oil paintings, watercolors, drawings,sculpture and prints. Her early work strongly reflected thetraditional aesthetics of her teacher Fan Zeng, but by thetime she exhibited in Canada, she was critiquing new socialdevelopments, consumerism and power relations in Chinathrough a series of mixed-media self-portraits. Her maturework in oils demonstrates an interest in Buddhism and apurely feminine aesthetic and can be seen as a response tothe masculine, sensual approach to the female nude.However, she has also painted male figures.
