M Y YIP

Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
August 19 - August 30, 2017
Reception: Saturday August 19, 2017 6-8 PM

M Y Yip’s paintings transform scenes of urban life into stark minimalist patterns. With a boldly geometric sense of perspective and composition, the artist gives each scene a double-edged presence. While the use of color and line in Yip’s paintings emphasize an almost abstract sense of form, the people break through that abstraction, foregrounding the solitude that exists in the urban world.

 

Able to vividly convey each subject’s gestures and feelings through a few simple lines or shapes, Yip gives each image a surprisingly emotional tone, bringing the loneliness of the world depicted to life.
