Lithographic print on Somerset paper

“We perceive color in the context with other colors in its environment. In this way, our experience of color is always in resonance with its neighboring colors. ” - Yunhee Min


Produced exclusively for GYOPO, on offer is Yunhee Min’s first foray into lithography titled Yellow Study (for GYOPO). Min’s work explores color and techniques of making, both in terms of pictorial conventions and material processes, to generate unexpected outcomes and spatial effects. 

Lithography, one of the earliest forms of printmaking, was selected by the artist to render the nuances of mark making and permutations of compositions in the color yellow. Available as an edition of 50, each monoprint features two distinct color plates in a range of yellows, generating what the artist describes as “a sense of simultaneous vibrations and relationships.” In effect, each print is a unique impression: surfaces with gauze-like layers rendered in varied yellow tones, resulting in optical vibrations. Yellow Study (for GYOPO) is a meditation on the brilliance of yellow reimagining the experience of color as a bodily phenomenon evoking a full range of emotions including warmth, joy and excitement.
