Color Theory

Yian sources materials from her immediate surroundings and social networks to keep her production budget to a minimum. By exploring the possibilities of how an ordinary object can be transformed through styling and framing, Yian comments on the autonomy of fashion from luxury and expense.

Employing a minimalist palette derivative of Mondrian’s color blocking, Yian achieves a formal purity in her imagery without having to make major adjustments in post-production. Tweaks involve light color adjustment to make every frame consistent and cropping to fit the artist’s grid.
