About Work

This piece of the “Fountainplant” series owes its title to Nong Jin (1687-1763), a painter and calligrapher in the Qing dynasty, who created his works under the pseudonym of Dong-Xin. Jin’s paintings of plum blossoms tended to be brimful of branches and flowers. Yen draws on that imagery to name this piece [Red Plum Blossom].

───

“I create works on flowers and plants neither by making sketches from them nor by turning them into something else. I simply bear them in mind and they will appear naturally in my paintings. Each brushstroke and block can be a flower, sprig, branch or leaf in a freehand style, as well as an abstract dot, line and plane.”

“I intend to open up the possibilities of contemporary painting between similarity and dissimilarity, abstraction and figuration, the oriental and the occidental, as well as between the past and the present.”
