Rimi Yang is a Korean artist who was born and raised in Osaka, Japan. Yang moved to L.A. in the early 90’s to attend school and study art and since has been living and working in Los Angeles fostering her artistic voice.
Her work is describe as “Celebrating the chaotic emotional duality that exists in life in her art, she revels in the confusion mankind creates in its attempt to order the un-orderable and to explain the unexplainable. Adhering to Joseph Campbell’s dictum that the best things in life are those you cannot explain her paintings are intuitive, instinctive, balancing acts of contrasts.”
Rimi Yang's work has evoked emotions from audiences all over the world.
Recently she was one of many local contemporary artists involved in a charity art show for the L.A. Family Housing organization. The LAFH is dedicated to helping families transition out of homelessness and poverty through supportive services.
The Room and Board furniture store, located at Helm’s Bakery in Culver City just outside of the Arts District, hosted a night of food, music, and art all for a good cause. Each artist had pieces on display for $400 and the proceeds were donated to the LAFH. Rimi Yang included a painting entitled “Kafka”, a small intimate portrait of a young man. The evening was a great success and the organization raised over $7,000! The show is on display until November 8th, so please stop in, take a look at wonderful art and support a great cause.
FreeWay Editions is not just about sharing great art but we are excited to be a part of a thriving community here in Los Angeles. We are always thrilled to see our artists prospering and sharing within that community. Stay informed about events coming up in support of LAFH.
