Jing Han Yang
Bed sheets, digital print and embossing on cotton paper
I am a multi-media artist, working with both fine arts and craft techniques to create sculpture-based work. I mainly work with print, and through interjection of other media allows my work to take on a three dimensional form. My works exist to be monumental and strange, begging its viewers for attention in a visually oversaturated world. Through material experimentation, my work often expands into maximalist forms, becoming a product of a memory. Grandparent’s Bed speaks about my relationship with a younger version of myself and my grandparents. Only through this mechanical process of casting and embossing was I able to not only better understand where I picked up many of my coping mechanisms, but reflect on how much of my memory is based on touch.
