YUYU ZHITONG

Yuyu, through the exploration of the gestural mark, seeks for a constant challenge to established modes of thought, emotion, and perception, exploring different methods and juxtapositions of extremes to further extend her understanding of pictorial structures and space .Yuyu enjoys the contrast between a sense of whimsical mystery and childlike influence.
