Su Yu-Xin b. 1991


Su Yu-Xin’s practice focuses on the relationship between visual language and other sensorial perceptions. Rather than painting from images or photography, Su’s work often tends to explore the complexity of a moment or a vague perception in life. Su uses painting to construct a delicate alternation of horizons, which varying distances elicit different paces of observation. The colourful layered surface and multi-perspective in her works generate a dynamic vision within each painting. Su’s paintings study how different rhythms, and fundamentally, the fluidity of human experience can operate and be stored inside a still imagery. In her practice, landscape is an in-between place, a traditional frontality in painting, which allows the artist to switch between figuration and abstraction, investigating the concept of new landscape - a mixture of still-life, graphs, digital calendar, fragments of text and memory. The landscape she is depicting is a field of hybrid vision and a contemporary impressionism that was never seen before this age.
