Yanmei Jiang is from Guangzhou China, and now she lives in New York. Her art tries to use lines and flowers to solidify abstract emotions into abstract physical entities. She tries to use the lines and flowers in painting or on the material to weave physical entities to express intimacy, life, and nature. Through these paintings or sculptures, she wants to change the emotions of viewers. Her photography work is about self-exploring and intimate relationships. Her paintings of The Softness in Your Eyes are about intimate memories and female emotions. And her sculptures and poem paintings in the space are using language to fill the space with intimate experience and love.
