FIRE: Element of Life
With traditional Chinese and Western art training, together with her own experiments, Marlene Yu has sought to create techniques that embodies the scope of her expression. References to nature are the focus of all her paintings. The scale of her paintings is a challenge, but not a limitation for her.  Marlene states, “To produce on canvas or paper what I have in my mind, my ideas and feelings on the universe, is a great challenge”.

“Fire - Element of Life” is part of The Lucky Sevens, a series of solo exhibitions in Shreveport/Bossier featuring artist Marlene Tseng Yu.  There will be 7 shows at 7 local institutions beginning with her 70th solo exhibition in her 77th year.
