Yang’s work is comprised of bodies of work sculpted and fired in clay. After practicing as a lawyer Yang stopped and reverted to her dream of becoming a full-time artist. For almost a decade she has pursued her mission and journey with clay.
Yang’s abstract biomorphic sculptural forms explore the mysterious nature of form and space-juxtaposing “certainty, and deliberate intent with chance…” Her pragmatic nature as a lawyer has enhanced her creative process. Yang delves into the journey of the known and the unknown. Her work elicits a “sense of things”. Her artistic language is informed by both Eastern and Western cultural influences having been bought up in Taiwan and then living for many years in the United States. Chinese painting and notation and works by Monet influence her innate sense of patination, color and texture. Brancusi and Noguchi influences can be found in her undulating flowing curvilinear forms; defining her dimensionality and aesthetic Yang’s work hold their own singularly and as part of a whole sculptural installation of forms.
Yang has exhibited at the American Museum of Ceramic Art, CA, and Islip Art Museum, NY. Her major sculptural wall installation for Aby Rosen is at his Soho NYC hotel, 11 Howard. She studied Anderson Ranch Arts Center, WI, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, ME, 92nd Street Y School of the Arts, NYC, the Art Students League of New York, and at School of Visual Art, NYC. She was also a Fellow of the Studio Immersion Project at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts.
