Gwen Yip was born and raised in Hong Kong and lived the world over before relocating yet again to the United States, currently New Jersey. Among other works, Yip captures the backs of people she doesn’t know and the isolation of living in a city in her painting series entitled Backs – London, NYC, and Hong Kong.
We all carry things on our backs.
Some shoulder burdens and regrets and
others carry dreams and hopes.
Some scarcely bear them and
others delightedly bring them wherever they go.
What do you carry on your back?
