Yunhee Min’s monotypes expand the idea of compositional space and draw the viewer into the depth of color as tones modulate and shift in gradients. In one suite of work, Min employs various color saturations in order to undermine dimension, perspective and perception. In another grouping of work, Min ran multiple passes of partially inked plates with overlapping angular wedges that simultaneously accentuated, blotted and muted areas of the composition. It is through the atmospheric quality of these works that Min attempts to be subversive: it is here she disrupts traditional spatial relationships by the most minimal intrusion of the artist’s hand.
