Two artists, two different genders, two ages, two different artistic styles, two different journeys of creating artwork… but their paintings share a common: “Yin” matter (from Yin-Yang concepts) – it might be the afterlife world, also could be the inner spiritual/emotional realm character/the spirit locating inside bodies.
