Information

Yage Guo 郭雅格
Born in 1998
London and Shanghai based artist

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.
