Yunhee Min’s color choices are energetic and powerful, yet soft and seemingly weightless. Exploring the possibilities in abstraction, Min’s use of squeegees and sprayers distances the hand and ultimately helps to create the ethereal nature of each canvas. Brilliant layers of neon greens, flaming reds, beaming oranges, and welcoming yellows appear translucent and create a sense of depth and spatial complexity. Using vertical bands as her standard composition, Min allows herself to focus on the play of colors. Vision and perception are destabilized through the creation of an endless horizon. Min’s primary concerns are material presence and optical effects, physical scale and palette.

Min has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Pasadena Museum of Contemporary Art, and Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Her work has been presented in group exhibitions at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, New Museum in New York, Sonje Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, among others.
