Yvonne Feng’s drawings present absurd scenarios, exploring the subjects of loss, absence and presence, entrapment and power relationships. Feng uses drawing to recall a specific touch, moment or event, through which she investigates herself and her relation to the world or to construct a fictional space within which her psychological states are encapsulated. Her drawings have a fractured and contingent quality in terms of time and space and a mysterious idea of narrative following through.
Yvonne Feng (b.1989, China) completed her BA at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2012, then MA at the Royal College of Art in 2014. She is currently studying her PhD at the Slade.
