Kamilla Yang-Hu’s exhibition titled Inner Landscapes is still on for another day in FISE Gallery in Budapest. The young artist invites us all on a deep psychological-philosophical journey. Join us!
Kamilla first studied graphic design at the Secondary School of Fine and Applied Arts, then graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a major in communication design and specialization in graphic design. The artist, who currently lives and works in Budapest, has always been fascinated by different types of visual media and literature, so it is not surprising that she eventually found her calling in the world of graphic design and illustration.
Kamilla is particularly interested in the relationship between narration, verbality, and visuality. For her, creating images provides a path to deeper understanding and a way for thoughts to flow more freely. Her creative process is mostly characterized by a psychological-philosophical approach that can be witnessed in her multi-layered, surrealistic images.
The images of Inner Landscapes invite you to various spaces in which opposites such as inside and outside, part and whole as well as the relationship between the individual and society, appear. However, in these concept pairs their interdependence, the fact that one cannot exist without the other, is also emphasized.
Kamilla consciously plays with the spaces shaped in her images, in which one can recognize nature and details of our man-made world, complemented by the tension between the two. The first thing, however, that the spectator notices is the dominant blue color, which, due to its rich symbolism, is the artist’s conscious decision.
The shades of blue are associated with contemplative-melancholic personalities as well as a focus on your inner world. Blue is also the color of the natural substances that surround us such as water and the sky, suggesting further layers of meaning. As Design and Art Manager Ildikó Fazekas said, “Kamilla’s risograph prints condense the vibrations of the soul into monochrome scenes, our solitude, trials, requests, and sorrows all find a place in a world with philosophical sensibility, ruled by light and burdened with clouds.”
