Xin Yu

(China 1996 -)


Born in 1996 in China, grew up in America, Xin is an architect turned artist who approaches her imagination with colors and life, bringing a sense of surrealness to a familiar but imagined world. Xin is drawn to the possibility of colors and attracted to subtle geometries which she embeds into her paintings. She reveals depth, and mischief of still lifes, bringing forth an area between reality and fantasy.

Everything is alive, broken down to the atoms. Even the shadows are alive and moving. A moment in time - when the shadows hit that precise orientation and when the leaves rumble slightly from the wind. Captured within the frames of a canvas, the moment was frozen and yet alive.
