Guimi You (artist website)
There’s something very disarming about You’s paintings owing to both her choice of palette (lots of pale hues and soft primary tones) and her subject matter (a mix of activities related to child-rearing and domestic chores). But her work is quietly epic. Her seven and a half-foot-tall painting “Destroyer” (2016), for instance, commanded one entire wall of her studio this weekend, its spatially disorienting drama only gradually resolving into a coherent image — that of a god-like toddler imposing his wrath on a toy train set. Likewise, it takes a moment for the cascading waves of “Drain Drain Drain” (2017) to register as what must be art history’s most epic painting of broccoli washing. —BS
