Yee Ling Tang

September 2006

Yee Ling Tang has created a string of photo projects, each vibrant in color and excellent in technique, yet touching on a different aspect of humanity. She is curious about social behavior and its manifestation in body language. She is especially fascinated with body language vs spoken language, because, as she describes, the former does not require translation. While most of her work has been driven by vivacious colors, she is currently researching black-and-white methods that will take her work in a new direction.

Yee Ling has participated in artist residencies in France, Sweden, China, Holland, and the U.S. She is preparing for exhibitions in Tokyo and Amsterdam. She was born in Hong Kong, but has lived in the Netherlands since she was a child.
