Already since her childhood Yijie Gong practiced traditional Chinese painting and was particularly interested in color here. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in China, she decided to go to Germany to study art. Her works reflect her thoughts about human nature and aesthetics. She borrows many of her pictorial ideas from the contemplation of landscape, yet the works incorporate aspects of Chinese painting techniques, allowing the artist to bridge the gap to her culture. With her contemplative color field paintings, the young Chinese artist Yijie Gong creates backdrop-like spatial experiences with a suggestive depth effect, making the color visually and almost physically tangible.
