Snow Yunxue Fu (b. 1987) is a Chinese-born and Chicago-based artist exploring the aesthetic concept of the sublime through a wide range of digital media. Trained formerly as a painter, Fu is known for her elaborate 3D animations that are modeled after the allegorical paintings of Caspar David Friedrich. Fu introduced computer animation to contemporary art at a time when the medium was colored by its mainstream associations with scientific modeling and commercial animation in film.
Fu has exhibited her work nationally and internationally including Thoma Art House in Santa Fe, Venice Architectural Biennial, Kunsthalle Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art, MoMA PopRally Online Screening, Current Art Museum, NURTUREart Gallery in Brooklyn NY, TEMP Art Space in New York, The Gallery C Space in Beijing, Currents: Santa Fe International New Media Festival, Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago and etc. Her early painting, “Kissing the Mother,” entered the permanent collection of the National Museum of China in 1994, making Fu the youngest artist represented by the collection.
