Colorful images of the beautiful Eugenia Yuan in a range of enigmatic positions, from vertiginous to placid. The allegorical portraits, expressing emotional states, are painfully objectifying, yet strangely personal.

Focusing on a single subject, the actress Eugenia Yuan, in a breathtaking collection of awkward and challenging poses in nature, Lai infuses her subject with a sensuality which is both immediate and mysterious. Her earth color palette, combined with state-of-the-art production, create a seamless and satisfying presentation.
A proud native of Jamaica, Lai began her career as a photographer in an unexpected way. Her newest series features the actress Eugenia Yuan and represents the artist’s most personal work to date.
Influenced by the french song, ‘Les Regrets’ by Alain Souchon. “For this collection I wanted to inspire courage. I wanted to showcase a person at their lowest point, rising, and being stronger than ever; the underlying subtext here is about survival.”
夢想革命 (Rêvant des Révolutions) 拍攝靈感來自法國歌手 Alain Souchon 的歌曲 “Les Regrets”

BNO is privileged in this auction to present the works of accomplished, contemporary photographers who have risen to the challenge of interpreting and defining life’s large and small ideas, objects and events through the magic of their lenses. Although geographic and cultural differences separate and distinguish these artists from one another (Monique Lai of a Jamaican/Chinese background), what they have in common is their extraordinary artistic vision and talent—as well as at times similar subject matter. And many of the works make ideal collector’s items.
