Charles Yuen
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Boerum Hill

Media:Painting; Drawing;


ARTIST STATEMENT: The surfaces of these paintings are battered, beaten, scarred and funky. Little bits of recognizable things push back against an enveloping abstraction. Sometimes these little bits reference actual things like sprouts, leaves, planets, Buddhist prayer flags, rocks, or shadows. Others reference more abstract, but no less concrete shapes, such as geometric shapes, spirals, stripes, diagrammatic notations; identifiable shapes with no real correlate in the natural world. My goal is a delicate balance in which the smallest elements work in conjunction with the largest to convey a human experience.
