Curly Yao Yi Nan


Yao Yinan’s raw landscapes from painting to mixed media, from her mastery of flushing the flat ink surface to her playfulness in exploring the dichotomy of natural materials and man-made pigments, Yao gives up painting for the first time in this exhibition while conserving and exemplifying her sensitivity to nature. What will immerse you under the idyllic theatre of the clear blue skies by day or amidst the mysterious haze of the night sky – the constructed bead curtains, the clouds anchored on rails, or the dangling, inverted glittering tree branches gathered from the forest? In contrast with a scholarly poet’s traditionally masculine and domineering representation of the landscape, Yao Yinan’s tender grasp of nature exudes a certain rawness, as she considers herself a woman of the landscape—quite literally of the mountains and of the water.
