Christine Wong Yap

Christine Wong Yap is an interdisciplinary artist working in installations, sculptures, multiples, and works on paper to explore optimism and pessimism. Her work examines the paradox that mundane materials or situations can give rise to irrational expectations, emotions, and experiences. Major touchstones are language, light and dark, and psychology. Her work has been exhibited extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as in New York, Los Angeles, Manila, Osaka, London, Newcastle, and Manchester (U.K). Born in California, Yap holds a BFA and MFA from the California College of the Arts. A longtime resident of Oakland, CA, she relocated to New York, NY last year.

For Open Space, Christine will publish Positive Signs, a weekly series of interpretive diagrams, quotes, and speculations on creativity, optimism and the lives of artists. Positive Signs are excerpted from a new series of drawings in glitter and neon gel pen with foil printing on gridded vellum (all works 2011).
