peek of city (2017)
While sorting her everyday photo works, Guo Yingguang found out that she had unintentionally taken many photos of stairs and walls. That moment, she noticed that she had always been intrigued by how lines and planes are combined together. Therefore, she tried to rearrange and restructure them, seeking for new connections. There comes the birth of a new scenery, constructed by the subtle connections among spaces, colors, forms and painting texture. She also tried to extract objects’ essence from their ordinary meanings. In this process, Yingguang used her sensitivity and instincts to rearrange roof tops, walls, stairs, windows, shades and textures in order to extract the expression of each partial space from their entirety - with more emphasis on color and lines, away from the logistic expressions in ordinary objective world.
Guo Yingguang graduated from London College of Communication (LCC) with a master's degree in Photography. She began her photographic career working as photojournalist for Reuters, China Daily and other domestic and international media groups. Moving onto the artistic world, her creations revolve around social problems in contemporary China: women on the shelf, arranged marriages, and pseudo-intimacy between the husbands and wives who are victims of such marriages. Her combination of photography and printmaking work characterized by melancholia, delicacy, and abstraction aims to investigate emotions related to her past, human connection as well as recombination of objects.
