“13 of Blondes”  Dorothy M. Yoon Solo Exhibition

8th March – 6th April 2008

Andrew James Art is proud to announce the first solo exhibition of Dorothy M. Yoon’s work in China of her new series “13 of Blondes”.  The exhibition will be at Andrew James Art, 39 Maoming Bei Lu, Shanghai, in a period colonial mansion.  The exhibition runs from the 8th March – 6th April, open Tuesday to Sunday 11am-7pm.

Dorothy is a London-based Korean artist and studied MFA at Goldsmiths College of Art in London where she graduated in 2007.

This body of work challenges stereotypes of Western and Asian beauty and also addresses her childhood desire to have blonde hair and blue eyes.

The artist who is a self confessed “Superstar Super Shy Girl” makes herself the centre of attention, portraying herself as “Venus” and declaring “I am love.”

Spend an evening with the artists you will come away from it thinking she is part movie star, part comedian, part model and 100% artist
