Gucci Tian

By Gucci:
“Malaysian Red Hong Yi describes herself as the artist who paints without a paintbrush. Using everyday objects like flower petals, leaves, and food, she creates bright, clean compositions celebrating love and creativity. She might take apart a lily and reconstitute its parts in three separate images, or depict pigs out of condiments like pink salt and peppercorn in homage to Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” For Gucci, Red Hong Yi has used components of flowers and leaves to create a Tian-inspired image of a bird with a blossom next to it; its beak consists of one perfectly pointed pink petal. The white space between the leaves and petals—her brushstrokes—allows us to view the image as both the whole and its components. — Larissa Phem”
