Rusha & Co. is pleased to announce Yuwei Tu: Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls, the inaugural solo exhibition by the artist. Drawing inspiration from Ocean Vuong’s poem of the same title, this presentation of works echoes similar themes, exploring the complexities of self and felt emotion.

Yuwei’s work examines themes of love, loss, and solitude. Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls is an ode to maternal relationships, an introspection of consciousness and a slow contemplation of self-acceptance. Her process, a patient and precise layering of thin oil glazes, adds tangible depth to her pieces, creating a physical manifestation of the layered and complex nature of the varied emotions that unite us in our shared humanity.

This exhibition, in tune with the reflection of Vuong’s poem, invites viewers to ponder the intricacies of the human spirit and identity.

“The most beautiful part
of your body is wherever 
your mother’s shadow falls.”
—Ocean Vuong
