Guan Yu

 

Guan Yu, 1989 Born in Qingdao, Shandong, China. Graduated from 2011 BA China Academy of Fine Arts, 2013 MA Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. Currently lives and works in Qingdao and London. Guan Yu’s paintings habitually include poetic text, but actively distance themselves from the content of the images. The distance between painting and text set up a perceptual trap to guide the viewer away from the overly normal perceptual dimension, while the brushstrokes of her paintings appear to be writing, the brushstrokes of text appear to be scribbling. Even though the paintings are full of the artist’s personal cues, the artist wishes to situate her artistic expression within the inevitable process of irreversible creating process and development, rather than revisiting personal contingent experiences and intimate past times.
