ABOUT NIMCHI YUEN
Painter, sculptor and jewellery maker. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Holland and studied art in the UK, Kent Institute of Art and Design. And now living and working in Plymouth, UK
I love taking inspiration from my different obsessions.
Inspired by nature, beautiful flowers,
eccentric animals and people.
I love ambiguity. I love to make elements clash to form a harmony together.
The heavy textured paint with the thin washes of watery paint.
The heavy and bold brushstrokes with the flowing dance of thin lines.
The black lines that define and confuse the images.
I like people to see what it is that I am painting. But when they look at the painting from closer, it is abstracted. A play of colour texture, shapes and lines.
Art is a way to give shape to our desires and fears. Combined with a some dreams, some sarcasm and some madness and some humour. This is what I would like to share with other people.
