Yu Hong In and Out of Time Art Release
(Beijing, 25 April, 2010) ? One of China?s most celebrated contemporary female artists, Yu Hong, presents her latest works at The Opposite House in Beijing, selected from her recent solo show at the Guangdong Museum of Fine Art.
Yu centres her works and practice on her experience as a woman, taking inspiration from both her own life and the lives of others around her. In these works of resin, familiar figures are painted on silk and carefully imbedded within sheets of resin. Each transparent plaque shimmers under light, reflecting waves of luminosity that capture frozen moments of time and memory. This body of extraordinary work carries on Yu?s ongoing meditation of everyday experiences in China today.
