Opening - Yu Hong @ The Opposite House in Beijing

Fresh from her recent solo show at the Guangdong Museum of Fine Art, Yu Hong is presenting some of her latest works in the six-story-high atrium of The Opposite House, the Beijing boutique hotel designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The artist's works draw on her experiences as a woman in today's fast changing society in China. Familiar figures are painted on silk and carefully imbedded within sheets of resin, each transparent plaque shimmering under light, reflecting waves of luminosity that capture frozen moments of time and memory.
