ARTIST STATEMENT
Su Yu-Xin’s (b. 1991) painting and other practices focuses on the relationships between visual language and other sensorial perceptions. Rather than painting from images or photography, Su’s work often tends to explore the complexity of a moment or a vague perception in life.

Su uses painting to construct a delicate alternation of horizons, which varying distances elicit different paces of observation. The colourful layered surface and multi-perspectives in her works generate a dynamic vision within each painting. Su’s paintings study how different rhythms, and fundamentally, the fluidity of human experience can operate and be stored inside a still imagery.
In her practice, landscape is an in-between place, a traditional frontalityin painting, which allows the artist to switch between figuration and abstraction, investigating the concept of new landscape- a mixture of still-life, graphs, digital calendar, fragments of text and memory. The landscape she is depicting is a field of hybrid vision and a contemporary impressionism that was never seen before this age.
Su holds a MFA in Fine Arts from Slade School of Fine Art UCL. She works between Shanghai and Taipei.
