    Su Yu-Xin (b. 1991) was born in Taiwan. She holds a MFA in Fine Arts from Slade School of Fine Art UCL, and works between Shanghai and Taipei. Her painting and other practices focus on the relationships between visual language and other sensorial perceptions. Rather than painting from images or photography, Su’s work often tends to explore the complexity of a moment or a vague perception in life. Su uses painting to construct a delicate alternation of horizons, which varying distances elicit different paces of observation. The colourful layered surface and multi-perspectives in her works generate a dynamic vision within each painting.

    Su’s paintings study how different rhythms, and fundamentally, the fluidity of human experience can operate and be stored inside a still imagery. In her practice, landscape is an in-between place, a traditional frontality inpainting, which allows the artist to switch between figuration and abstraction, investigating the concept of new landscape - a mixture of still-life, graphs, digital calendar, fragments of text and memory. The landscape she is depicting is a field of hybrid vision and a contemporary impressionism that was never seen before this age.

    Her recent exhibitions include: “The Eighth Huayu Youth Award Exhibition: A Long Hello”, UCCA, Beijing, 2020; “The Picture Is Not at Ease”, MadeIn Gallery, Shanghai, 2020; Solo Project “Almost No Memory”, MadeIn Gallery, Shanghai, 2020; “A Hue to Spell”, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, 2019; “hic sunt leones”, 798 Art Centre, Beijing, 2019; “Taiwan Biennial-Wild Rhizome”, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, 2018; “Building Code Violation III, Special Economic Zone”, Long March Space, Beijing, 2018; “Trembling Surfaces”, Long March space, Beijing, 2016; “Future Island”, Saatchi Gallery, London, 2016; “Refuse: Refuge: Re-fuse”, The Koppel Project, London, 2016; “Small press project”, University of College London, London, 2016; etc. Su Yu-Xin was shortlisted for the 8th Huayu Youth Award.
