Yumin Kao enjoys using paper pulp and metalwork as the media for the artwork. Commonly used materials for natural paper pulp include tree bark, straw, newspaper, xuan paper, plants, etc., because the pulp has a unique rustic texture. In the process of researching the original characteristics of the material, the raw material is studied carefully and experimented to test the relationship between different materials and colors. Original pattern burning technique is used to form the different values of brown, interpreting the relationship between nature and inner spontaneity to bring the viewers a new sense of visual perception and reflection.

Concepts:

 

In regards to shape, the use of curved lines is preferred over straight lines as organic curves represent vitality and symbolize continuity. Distortions created by the unconscious kneading of objects are the result of repetitive curves and geometry.

 

 

 

 

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I specialize in metalworking and sculptures and am dedicated to fashion jewelry and contemporary art using a variety of expressions. Appreciating contemporary complex thinking, I often enjoy taking part in observing naturally organic forms. In pursuit of the delicate expressions of natural microcosms, I convey artistic connotation and individual spirit through organic shapes in an attempt to find tranquility within the chaos of the ever-changing material society revealing the essence of individual consciousness. In regards to shape, the use of curved lines is preferred over straight lines as organic curves represent vitality and symbolize continuity. Distortions created by the unconscious kneading of objects are the result of repetitive curves and geometry.
