Lot 35 - Yage Guo - Look at a Flower in Fog
Watercolour and pencil on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Curated by Vanessa Murrell
Yage Guo's paintings encompass various techniques, including oil painting on wood panel and canvas, pencil drawing, and bookmaking. Drawing inspiration from literature, nature, mysticism, and imagery, Yage paints portraits, flowers, and still life with an ethereal style, with unique brushwork to evoke dreamlike fantasies or hazy memories. Time, nidana, and the use of metaphors are crucial concepts in her practice. She approaches these notions with a romantic and contemplative attitude. The presence of figures and objects no longer merely depicts their physical appearances; instead, it serves as a metaphorical exploration of the passage of time and the depth of emotions.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
In life's frosty breath, where biting winds may roam,
Treasure tender moments in the silence of the night.
Resilience whispers within the chill's embrace,
Appreciate resistance, a quiet twist of might.
A warmth untold, a delicate grace.
