Abstract (English)

"Jinny Yu challenges more than the concept of painting. Her work questions the very existence of predisposed artistic practices as she blurs the lines between methodology and ideology. Oscillating between the fields of the abstract painting and the object, Yu seeks out aspects of painting beyond the pictorial space, striving to depict that which is beyond the image. The choice of materials is integral to her artistic practice and conceptual preoccupations and she frequently paints with oil on aluminum, whose semi-reflective surface comprises a pictorial space. For the artist the pictorial space of the aluminum is a material fact, a pre-existing condition of the as yet unpainted surface, and by painting on such a surface, one that is already pictorial, Yu’s work begins where painting often ends. Published with Éditions Art Mûr, this monograph is thoroughly illustrated with original essays and an interview with the artist." -- Distributor's website.
