Yu JinYoung has been able to capture hidden subtext by using transparency in her work. 
I find these life-size sculptures to be haunting. 
They evoke an unexpected depth of emotion, so much so, that I find them difficult to look at for any length of time, yet I am curious. So I look.


I found a nice interview on Arrested Motion where she describes the process of making these sculptures. 
It is laborious and ingenious.
