You Ni Chae Double Dutch 2013 oil on canvas 20" x 18"
You Ni Chae is a graduate of SAIC originally from So. Korea. She blends her Asian history with current trends in abstract painting in a most interesting way. I get the feeling that scholar rocks and mid-west landscape have been conflated to become her her own unique visual language. Elegant and tough, diaphanous and concrete, beautiful and unsettling.
