Yunhee Min’s practice challenges the conventions of abstract painting as a practice exclusive to men by building on the legacy of the studio practice. Her work, Terra Firma #3, 2000, resembles the stripped paintings Brice Marden began making in the 1970s. While Marden built layer upon layer of paint and wax over perfect rectangle canvases, Yunhee Min plays with the shapes of her canvases to unsettle the viewer. She also uses light colors, a defiant gesture almost as if saying she can use pastel tones and remain a serious painter.
