Backs: Storytelling, Minimalist Paintings About Loneliness And Urban Life – Gwen Yip

Gwen M.Y. Yip is a New-Jersey based artist who creates minimalist paintings that explore both themes of loneliness and the shapes and stark structures of urban environments. Her subjects wait for trains, walk sidewalks, and carry literal and metaphorical weights on their backs. ‘We all carry things on our backs. Some shoulder burdens and regrets and others carry dreams and hopes. Some scarcely bear them and others delightedly bring them wherever they go. What do you carry on your back?’
