Next week, Toronto-based artist Kendra Yee will be descending from Toronto to partake in the Juxtapoz Projects residency in Brooklyn. Hosted at Superchief Gallery in Ridgewood, Yee will be working alongside Berlin-based artist Ruohan Wang for the month of June.

In anticipation of this exciting news, we want to share with you some of Yee's art.  Her work consists of mixed-media paintings, ceramic sculptures, and panel-based illustrations. Yee pulls tales from her personal history, lived experiences and collective memory to form speculative worlds where fluid characters come to life through the conversations of interactive bodies.  The result is beautiful and personal and weird, with a strong emphasis on unexpected compositions.

We can't wait to share more of her work with you next month, but in the meantime, let's soak up all she's got to offer via the slideshow above.
