Tub 1, 2016 , Oil on canvas, 36 x 48 inches

Ruby (Leyi) Yang is enthusiastic about her mostly large-scaled canvases, covered with layers of paint, extremely vibrant colors, a touch of untamed drawings of shapes, and fragmented words. Characterized by continuously expanding investigation into painting, her practice, transformed into multi-media, allows her to unfold the space in painting into spaces within digital media, real-life spaces and performance. She is continuously researcing what it is beyond the meaning of language - beyond the meaningless. Various media has helped her to unleash her thoughts and literalize her understanding on the path to finding her essence. Greatly inspired by Cubism and concrete poems that involve the deconstruction and recreation of forms and meanings, Ruby is willing to go further down the path of researching and developing her work.
