About Yong Sin

Primarily works on painting/installation using mixed media.

The simple becomes unexpectedly elaborate; the ordinary metamorphose into distinctiveness. The goal is to create work that is inherently distinctive and belies its repetitiveness.
The ordered linear grid format is often a composition to experiment with group structure and the dynamics of configurations. There is persistent interplay within each grid that amplifies within a group setting.

I create nuances to challenge the ideas of identity, and I create just enough expressive variations to the seemingly recurring shapes.
