Colours Of The Kimberley Reimagined
450mmL x 550mmH x 450mmD / Sculpture In Raw Corten Steel, Powdercoated & 2 Pac Paint Finish 

Influenced by Cubism, geometry and modernism, Yuen's sculpture practice focuses on the study of form, spatial tension and volumetric space.

The basic sheet of corten steel is manipulated into contrapposto geometric form.

She encourages viewers to experience her works from multiple standpoints, to look in and around whilst manipulating their own new experience of space.

Yuen's sculptural practice balances between land and built form.

Her artistic philosophy combines an appreciation of the rich cultural heritage of Australia whilst navigating her role as an artist and architect.

In particular, Colours of the Kimberley Reimagined is influenced by her time spent in Western Australia.

Corten steel with the rich layered textures and colours enhanced via degradation is representative of the rich ochre colours of the Kimberley.

The use of deep blue is akin to the waterholes found in the region.
