This series reflects my interaction and relationship to land, space and home. You might feel embraced, immersed, lost or even indifferent after viewing them, but what I find fascinating is the emotional resonance I get from the viewers and finding out what actually speaks to them.
Xiaoyao Yao is an artist based in Chicago that has a major focus on painting and visual design. A lot of his works deals with feelings of warmth, frustration, struggle etc. that he gets when being around a certain space or environment. He tries to express those feelings, which are often ineffable through words, which would confuse or mislead the audience.
