Yan Jun White, born 1982 in China and trained in fine arts, is a freelance painter in Berlin. Yan Jun White's works profoundly explore the themes of love hate and loneliness and illuminate their impact on the individual and the world.
The latest exhibition features a variety of oil paintings, including still lifes and portraits, most done in the mesmerizing color blue. But this exhibition goes far beyond simply presenting a particular color. The artist deals with the themes that characterize human existence: Love, hate and loneliness. By using blue as the dominant color in her works, the artist imbues each of her pieces with a certain mood and vibrancy.
In its depth and intensity, the color blue can evoke both positive and negative emotions. The portraits depict the depth of love and the sorrow of loneliness. The still lifes show the beauty of nature and its fragility in today's world, while the darker works reflect the darkness of hatred and isolation.
