Yasmin Sison gently delves into spaces of dissonance in The Domestic Life of Pictures, her latest solo exhibition at Silverlens featuring oil on canvas paintings as well as installation works.
This is a process that SISON has repeatedly employed throughout her practice as a painter: the act of appropriating images from print magazines and subsequently altering them through additional elements. SISON first explored such a process 16 years ago in 1996, during her first solo exhibition where her paintings covered up magazine images of fashion shoots, “transforming them into phantasms,” as the artist writes.
In the show, SISON has explored this concept of appropriation and alteration repeatedly, fascinated by the recurring flow of drawing forth contradictions.
