State of Mind and Awareness: Materiality

Elegant and interesting show by University of the Arts London student Huiping (Hebe) Yang and Reading University new graduate Ying Chi (Eva) Lam.  Eva's soft sculpture grew out of the walls and squeezed through a doorway, echoing her own imaginings of herself as an explorer and inventor.  She transforms everyday materials through sensitivity to their own intrinsic language, producing peculiar forms that provoke the imaginations of her viewers.  Hebe paints with the unconscious mind to create suggestive collections of shape and forms, moving from figuration to abstraction and from absence to intentional.
