During Yuen's artist residency at Takt (Berlin, Germany), she created 25 paintings that highlight the distance between memory and experience. She photographed things she encountered in her daily routine and incorporated them into her paintings. She is consciously aware that all manners of record--photography, painting, and the visual imprint on her mind--are intrinsically removed from the original experience. The multi-layering of her works accentuates the illusiveness and subjectivity of memory, and offers her a souvenir of my her own making.
