正如阿尔曼·阿瓦尼斯安所说,我们生活在一个过去与现在相碰撞、未来不可预知的世界。幸运地是,不可预知背后的美妙之处在于,没有什么是一成不变的,一切都有可能发生。这反过来让以自己的方式展现远见的艺术家有机会利用他们所拥有的各种工具,来创造不为人知的故事。正如上面提到的,时间是一个流动的概念,而不是静止的,因此Yuho选择使用水墨作为她的主要媒介,因为它的流动感和变革性。

Much like Armen Avanessian says, we are currently living in a world where past and present are colliding which makes the future unpredictable. Luckily, the beauty behind the unpredictable is that nothing is set in stone, thus allowing all possibilities to happen. This, in turn, gives artists, who are visionaries in their own way, a chance to utilize the many tools they have at their disposal to create untold stories. Most of this genius is achieved by thinking outside of the box with no boundaries and simply allowing the paint to touch the canvas. As mentioned, time is a fluid concept, rather than a static one, and as such, Yuho chooses to use ink as her primary medium for its fluid and transformative nature. She trusts it to guide her hand down a winding path, leading her to tell a story.

我是一位在洛杉矶和香港生活的艺术家。抽象是对我的作品恰如其分的描述,星星、星座、太阳系的星球,包括地球美丽的自然资源都是我灵感的源泉。水墨和丙烯是我常常选用的工具,这两种材质可以优雅、柔美地流动,帮助我达成期望的效果。另外,得益于珠宝设计方面的背景——它需要丰富的想象力和创造力——我能够将这些技能转换到艺术作品之中。在画笔触碰到画布之前,就能轻松在头脑中看到画作的背景、布置、色调和方向。经过多年的珠宝设计,我感到自己越来越闪闪发光,更加成熟。因此,在画画时我会选用大胆的色彩,来释放热情、自由、正能量的感受。对我而言,最重要的是关注形式和色彩关系以及视觉构图。

I’m an artist based in Los Angeles and Hong Kong. While my work is best described as abstract, I primarily draw inspiration from the stars, constellations, and planets of our solar system, including the Earth’s beautiful natural resources. My choice of tools often involves working with ink and acrylic as both mediums flow graciously and lusciously, helping me achieve my vision. Additionally, coming from a jewelry background, which requires a great deal of imagination and creativity, I’ve been able to transfer those skills to my work as an artist. I have found it easier to visualize my painting’s setting, placement, color tones, and orientation before my paintbrush hits the canvas. After spending years designing jewelry pieces, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to sparkle and sophistication. As such, when I paint, I look for bold colors to emit feelings of passion, freedom, and positive energy. To me, it’s most important to focus on formal color relationships and visual composition.
