Yunuen’s palette is very vivid and contrasting. Such a feature, coupled with the fragmentary technique that represents shapes from small geometric figures, gives her work a particularly playful tone. Every piece evokes a kaleidoscope, a puzzle or even the illustrations with which
you learn to draw.
With the aid of a mobile app, Yunuen shows that there are multiple planes of meaning to her work. Every piece is charged with different stories. In this alternate plane of creation she reveals the hidden meaning of each painting. Presenting fish, rams, crabs, lions and scorpions that come to life using a smart phone. Using a fresh dose of satirical humor, she leaves the door open for interpretation. The spectator can figure out if the figures are merely animals or something bigger. She gives us a clue with the name of each painting.
