About the artist:

Yunhee Min is an artist based in Los Angeles, and is an Associate Professor and Chair in the art department at UC Riverside. She has previously explored the cultural, social, and historical dimensions of the signification  of color in her work but is currently interested in the potentiality of color as pure sensation. To investigate these concerns, over the past two decades Min has moved between studio painting and large-scale, site-specific installations, creating works in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, and video. During her more than 20 years exhibiting nationally and internationally, her work has been featured in more than 30 solo exhibitions and site projects in galleries, museums, and non-commercial institutions. Min is also the founder of Silvershed, an artist-run space in New York City.

About her work: 

"My painting process involves various stages, some seemingly more pragmatic than others but all stages are vital in the end.

... I spend days just getting the colors ready. And they are often my favorite studio days before the actual application begins on the surface.

Often though not direct, I take my color studies as starting points. The color studies take varied forms from vertical bands to biomorphic pours on paper. They help me to select a group of colors to begin the painting. Once the application of paint begins the process of painting is very durational - kind of like cinema where time can be stretched beyond the actual time. So in a sense I am walking into the process without knowing how it might play out. It is an experience that takes time of looking and responding. And you hope to walk through unexpected places along the way, which can feel both exciting and unnerving. ..."
