Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to present a series of new works by the rising Chinese oil painter, Yuan Yuan (b. 1973) at the Insights section of Art Basel Hong Kong 2014. A graduate from the highly acclaimed China Academy of Art Oil Painting Department, Yuan Yuan approaches the canvas as an exploration of a particular thematic: the interior and exterior of living spaces that evince a trace of humanity and a passing of time. Notably vacant, the areas portrayed balance an apocalyptic aura of desolation with a distinct sense of previous inhabitation. Yuan Yuan’s work thus resonates with the contemporary plague that strikes architectural constructs: buildings are emblems of an age, yet around the world and particularly in China – where rapid and radical changes are constantly occurring – the values of such symbols are constantly in flux.
