"POINT BY POINT: REFERENCE FROM THE PAST" CHUNG YOUNG YANG, MOONSHINE MUSEUM SEPTEMBER 2016

 

"I work with traditional weaving and dye techniques to create surfaces with a luminous color palette. Memories of holidays, birthdays and long summers at my grandparents house as a child develop the palette within my work. Soft yet vibrant colors constructed with eclectic and delicate materials create structures that seek to embody the emotions contained in these memories. By creating these representations of remembered experiences and emotions through color I invite the viewer to rest and reflect."

"As a Craft Major, materials and process are one of the main components of any work. With my work I want the viewer to be able to look at the piece and see the time that was put into it. I want to teach people to love and respect Craft. The techniques I work with are tedious but rewarding. I spend a lot of my time dressing looms, tying knots and dying fabric.
