Haelyn Y is an emerging artist, working primarily in oils and charcoal. She originally trained in the traditional way but often employs bold colours and impasto in an expressionistic manner.
Haelyn Y explores issues related to memory and feeling through the process of painting. Her work often reflects a deep fascination with memory and interpretation of shapes and forms, representing her own attempt to examine the dichotomy between the present and the past.
In her view, memories have their own lives - some remain still while some change because we, who do the recalling, change. So her works are representations of them, expressed wholly and realistically or in fragments and abstractly.
