Crys Yin’s work focuses on a reflection of her personal history. Distorting scale and skewing perspective are tools that she uses to recall and reinterpret this history. She's currently following a line of curiosity that leads to a better understanding of her hyphenated cultural background. In a constant state of alienation and otherness, she uses humor as a device to transcend embarrassing and awkward misunderstandings. And by grouping figures and objects in her paintings, the fulfillment of belonging and closeness – both physical and other – is possible.
