Aishan Yu b.1981
Aishan Yu re-interprets historical documentary photographs through the mediums of drawing and painting.  The artist’s drawings are feats of incredible detail and precision, and via this method she seeks to meet the subject and bring about a moment of intimacy, even reciprocity. The act of copying becomes a form of immersion, even as the anonymity and ambiguity of the title is upheld.
