Capsule Shanghai is pleased to participate in the Frame section of Frieze New York 2022, presenting "Breath to Breath", a solo project by Chinese artist Yan Xinyue.


Yan Xinyue's recent paintings unveil multiple facets of her understanding of urban life. With imagination, the artist translates individual circumstances, fleeting moments, and episodes she observes in the city onto the canvas, on which Yan highlights emotions such as passion, anxiety, and melancholy with a sense of detachment.
