In New Youth Huang invokes nostalgia through memory’s imprecise sketching, and by creating the appearance of a photograph in which the subjects are striking playful, self-conscious poses.

The three girls are grouped together in a single frame, but stand as detached individuals. Their trendy appearance suggests prosperity unknown to previous generations, but offers no insight into what substance lies beneath their youthful fashions. Huang presents her new youth with no visual context, conveying a sense of disconnection.

A word from The Artist

Memories of youth are a theme in my work; the hazy blizzard-like texture aims to recreate the there-but-not-there effect of recollection. I find inspiration in both my own experiences and those of people around me. Each person will have their own understanding of an artwork; a good piece of art will arouse an feeling or memory without using words.
