XUAN Yu Meng

Xuan Yumeng is an artist who focuses on the internal feelings of the youth and the geometric structure of the realistic world under her unique perspective. Illustration creates an illusion for Xuan. As a visual artist with visual problem, the artist perceives the world as an aggregation of symbols and colour pigments on a flat dimension. She believes in the pure connection between internal facts and external expression through the light reflection on the brain. In her works, she challenges the connection between vision and visual art and tries to break the boundary between dimensions. Ceramic mirrors the artist’s idle and defective self through the endless failure in the progress of creating “perfection”. The conflict between slack thought and self-requirement creates the feelings of inferiority, and the rustic clay becomes the pure approach for the artist to identify herself in a contradictory society. Xuan Yumeng, born in Qingdao, China. Her works are shown in “Present by Hirabayashi” (2018).

玄雨萌從獨特的自我視野出發,以幾何體構成世界並關注人的情感。插画為她造就一種幻象,現實世界成為符號與色塊在平面上的組合。受自身視覺的影響,她相信在大腦感受到的光反射中,內在感覺與外在表現有純粹的連接。其作品嘗試突破空間界線,挑戰視覺與藝術的關係。带有失误的陶瓷成為她对自身不完美的反射。追求完美的过程中,純粹的陶土成為矛盾社會下尋求自我的良方。 玄雨萌出生於青島,作品曾在“平林出品”(2018)中展示。
