Mm Yu employs the skill of drip painting together with her photography, making her art special and unique. Drip painting is process-oriented and follows modernist abstraction and brings out a pop appeal and new excitement to the artwork. This combination of photography and drip painting is a visual treat for her admirers. In the drip painting process, gravity is of utmost importance. The paint is dripped onto the canvas, creating a unified overall pattern which allows the eye to travel from one end of the canvas to the other and back again.

  • +Artist Bio

    MM Yu graduated from the University of Philippines with a degree in Fine Arts in 2001. She received the the Ateneo Art Gallery Common Room Bandung Residency Grant in 2007 and the Cultural Center of the Philippines 13 Artists Award in 2009. She was also a finalist in the Sovereign Art Prize in 2010 and was shortlisted for the Ateneo Art awards in 2011. Almost never found without her camera slung around her neck, MM Yu has built an extensive photographic archive of the accidental urban environment of Manila. These detail people, objects and places that communicate the world surrounding her. She frames enchanting scenes out of overlooked and chaotic subject matter as well as random relations between disparate things through her ability to discern resonances in color, patterns and whimsical features. Her drip paintings are process-oriented and quote modernist abstraction, but they possess a pop appeal and exuberance - their changing variables supply guilt-free ocular pleasure. Physical gravity being integral to the process, they seem to encourage grounding the visual experience with associations to the real world.
