“Yu Lin Huang” Opening Fri. April 27, 6-9pm
My body of work reflects my multicultural background and my art historical training. My experience as an immigrant, a Chinese American, a woman, a teacher, a curator, and an art historian has provided me invaluable resources to draw from. I use figurative forms to communicate my thoughts and my observations of the world. Art historical training also enabled me to adopt an analytical view to examine my work in terms of content, design and techniques. This group of work in the exhibition, including oil paintings and collages works, reflect my interest in social-political, and feminist themes. These paintings are my commentaries to wars, cultural and artistic issues, and gender conflicts. work is typically a form of social commentary. Under the current political climate, parts of my practice have taken a surprising turn away from such a focus as a response to the overwhelming media barrage and hostility perpetuated by the occupant of the White House. This series of mixed media paintings is explorative in process and simplicity.
