Climax a victory
Born in China, Yvonne Feng now lives and works in London. Alongside her practice, Yvonne is a doctoral candidate at the Slade School of Fine Art having previously obtained an MA in drawing from the Royal College of Art and a BA in Fine Art also from the Slade.
Yvonne’s practice uses painting as a medium for representing memory, events, and history. Using her own and others’ narratives about entrapment, marginalisation, and displacement, the artist’s work attempts to share personal and social psychological experiences that would otherwise be incommunicable.
At a time when images are often the default medium for communication, Yvonne explores how the painting process can undo preconceived ideas of an event and clear a path for emotional and meaningful engagements. She seeks new representations of existence in times of great political and
cultural changes, reflecting on conflicts both within the self and between the self and the world.
