Statement

Rimi Yang is an ethnic Korean who was born and raised in Osaka, Japan. In 1986 she moved to the Ohio where she studied at Bowling Green University and then in 1991 to Los Angeles where she studied at California State University and the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, the Otis College of Art and Design and spent a summer in Florence, Italy, studying at the Florence Academy of Art.

She has lived and worked near the ocean in Santa Monica since 1991.

Yang celebrates the chaotic emotional duality that exists in life. She is deeply curious about both Eastern and Western art history, reveals new meaning by deconstructing iconic images of each culture, borrowing images from masterpieces. At the same time, Yang tries to cultivate new methods of paintings by mixing up different techniques from various painting styles, escorting viewers down the path to Rimi’s unique and mysterious wonderland.

Her work has been exhibited in Europe, Canada, on both coasts, most notably in New York and Los Angeles, and she has been feature numerous times in the Kyoto Journal.
