Meet the Artist – Yvonne Cheng
August 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Artist Yvonne Cheng will speak about her long and rich career as an artist. She has worked in many mediums and techniques, including batik, paper collage, acrylics, pastel and glass/ceramic mosaic. Her subject matter, however, has remained consistent – a result of her lifelong fascination with the human figure. Her subjects frequently appear in relaxed poses, effortlessly occupying the space around them. They often appear layered in fabric decorated with patterns drawn from the artist’s extensive research on Hawaiian and Tahitian textile design, including the ancient patterns of Hawaiian kapa cloth and the Tahitian pareo.
