PBG is pleased to present the artist Yislow’s private exhibition “Ampersand” from November 11 through December 6, 2022. Yislow who delivers pleasure and comfort with bright color and unconventional free composition will show three editions created in cooperation with Print Bakery for the first time along with about 35 pieces of work that cover the bonds and relationships among the artist’s character ‘Lo,’ her as an artist, and her as a person through this exhibition. The title of this exhibition Ampersand refers to the typographic sign ‘&’ used in place of ‘and.’ Ampersand that is the main character that connects the artist Yislow with Yislow as a person and resembles a Möbius strip at first sight came to be used since it could present the ‘bond’ penetrating this exhibition well. The artist Yislow presented the character ‘Lo’ in her works since she felt the necessity of the self that only exists in the works to establish the relationship between her works and herself.
‘Lo’ acts in her works in various forms under the attribute, “It can be anything since it is nothing.” Sometimes as a speaker and other times as a listener. Sometimes as the protagonist and other times as a background. Sometimes as a presentation and other times as an abstraction. Like this, ‘Lo’ works only in Yislow’s works and reveals the relationship and bond between the artist and the works and between the artist and herself. This would cause a discourse on morphological and conceptual properties of the character in the realm of painting and show another fresh possibility of the relationship and functions among the works, the artist, and the character.
Yislow believes that there is a sense of emotion that can be felt only by sight in a state of no information at all and through work of concentrating on the light emotions that come from the moment. She makes the viewers fall into their own deep imagination and contemplate very near-daily life. She has been communicating with the public through various media without boundaries, such as brand collaborations and projects. Her sensuous images give the public, who want to find the one and only thing of their own among everyday objects, the fun of consumable art.
