Intro
Yujia Gao was born and raised in China and currently study at the Royal College of Art in London. During the time at RCA she started getting interested in metal craftsmanship, she began experimenting with making containers and object that we could use in our daily life and combine the object with the craft together in her own way.

Statement

As a jeweller-maker-designer I explore the relationship between objects and space, trying to find the missing part of the object.

Still Life comes from childhood time memory. I remember the time when I first started to learn how to draw, I was so confident and comfortable, believing that I drew what I saw. Starting with geometry shapes. After training I was taught to be accurate then I lost the joy of drawing and saw my drawing differently.

Perspective is the eye for our extension of the scale of space and distance. It is the rule of how we see the world and a stereotype for us to know yet sometimes it can be deceptive. I rebuild a still life from the drawing I did from my childhood time. In these drawings, the perspective and proportion are not always right. In my work, the geometric forms can only be seen in one perspective and there are some faults, inaccuracy, distortion.
