Yuxin Su

Taipei, Taiwan

Taiwanese artist Yuxin Su’s body of work develops across different media from paintings, collages, photography and experimental hand-made artist books.

She is concerned with the understanding of time within the static media emphasising on the way images hold time.

Painting is an act of remembrance for her, as painting is a fragment of another longer time-based or bigger narrative.

“Painters make paintings, trying to hold the time. But they know: As they say the more they remember, the more they forgot. The Image is the scar of some incompletion, of imperfection; something in our lives stutters. And that imperfection is precisely the necessary condition for the continuous existence of the image or it will just lead back to that current of lost time. The thing we truly forget is only the perfect, the finished.”
