Kevin Yu’s oeuvre has been categorized as abstract painting. Applying écriture automatique, the artist repeatedly daubed the canvas with paint in a willful and primitive manner, manifesting his ingenious experiments with geometric abstraction and personal exploration of the essence of artistic creation in these shapes and lines in coordination with the concise composition of his oeuvre.
“My paintings are not exactly so abstract.”
Even though Yu employs abstraction as his way of presentation, he has never denied the presence of consciousness, specific atmosphere that may pervade the composition (e.g. water flow), or even symbols and collages. The interplay between the abstract and the representational not only opens up endless possibilities for artistic expression, but also lends inspiration for ideas and our being in the world.
