Yue Quan’s artistic practice is centered around establishing a dialogue between herself and her larger identities. Motivated by her passion for gender studies and the urge to celebrate traditional Chinese art practices, she develops an iconography of women that combines traditional portrayals with contemporary aesthetics and issues. Quan’s Tales of Water series depicts women unfazed in the midst of otherworldly scenarios that nonetheless mirror real-world misogyny. Her other works in this virtual exhibition are centered around similar topics but are voiced through a different vocabulary. For some, isn’t the mundane everyday life as strange as freak occurrences?
