YANQING IS AN EMERGING ARTIST CURRENTLY RESIDING IN new york

These bodies are yours, mine, and ours – twisted and fused together. We see ourselves within their sensations, their neuroses, and their flesh. Emotion and meaning are written all over their forms, shaped into vehicles of empathy and metaphors for their contradictory states of sublime alienation.

Yanqing’s work has been shown in both Singapore and New York. She was recently part of ‘The Patriot’ at O’Flaherty’s, and a group showing at Dacia Gallery (Carpe Diem, 2022)Yanqing is currently pursuing her MFA at the New York Academy of Art.
