Yee Yong is a printmaking artist who works in a variety of media. By examining ambiguity and origination through retakes and variations, she aims to enhance the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

Her artworks question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of the contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, she intends for the viewer to become part of the art, as an added component. She believes that art is entertainment: to be able to touch the work and interact with the work is important. She makes work that generates diverse meanings — associations and meanings collide, space becomes time and language becomes image.
