Through marrying offbeat color palette and off-center geometry, Ev Yu (b. 1990) conjures chaotic yet hallucinatory visuals. In her works, shapes transfigure to another, colors transition into different hues, and often, too, these elements collapse into each other.
It may be challenging to make out a familiar figure in Yu’s watercolor paintings, yet there is a palpable sense of narrative in the way they are segmented into panels. Her works tell the story of being on the edge of explosion, of transformation, and of mutation.
