Yezi works in a variety of media, mainly from painting and drawing to printmaking. Depicting the confrontation between familiarity and defamiliarity, the objects in her works may not be immediately understood as to exactly how they were supposed to be; while the audience views them as general observational art, perhaps attracted by the toned-down color can slowly discover the narrative meaning behind them. Most of the objects in her works are barely noticeable; these neglected objects are given an abstract and cultural meaning without necessarily carrying a purpose.
