Yumiko Ono is interested in form and formats. Repetition and reproduction are often seen in her work, which ranges from drawings to sculptures to videos to sound installations. Her aim is to interpret the subjects that she finds, and give them a new order through her point of view, which usually results in laconic expressions. She is currently experimenting with minimalistic geometric forms, particularly those related to the field of architecture.
Yumiko Ono is a contemporary artist who works with various media. Ono completed her BA in Oil Painting in Kyoto, Japan. She then went on to study in various countries including Hungary, Czech Republic and Israel as a government scholarship student before receiving an MA in Intermedia in the Czech Republic. She is currently completing her second MA degree in ceramics in Saint Petersburg, Russia.yumikoono.com

Gracia Khouw’s works explore language, both visual and auditory. She creates minimal geometrical arrangements in which our comprehension of letters and their symbolic meaning are disturbed. Khouw’s images float between purely geometrical designs and readable letters and symbols.
Gracia Khouw attended the Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam, and the Design Academy Eindhoven. Khouw has exhibited at art spaces internationally including at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey and at the Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair, and her work is part of private collections around the world.

Ling-lin Ku hybridizes language and daydreaming in her sculptures and installations, weaving her sense of humor into the structure she makes. Using everyday objects as references, she digs deep inside them creating transformative relationships and new modes of interconnectivity. She always sees objects as being unfixed, plastic, liquid and slippery, and resists the habit of using a single static name to denominate things. Her plays between faux and “real” materials, and exaggerated scale shifts, give her work a feeling of deceptive mass, strange gravity and unknown physics.
Ling-lin Ku (born Taiwan) completed her undergraduate degree at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts. She was the recipient of travel grants for locations along what used to be referred to as the Silk Road in Asia and Europe. Ku also obtained a law degree law in Taiwan before relocating to the United States.linglinku.vcusculpture.info
