“Talking to her ll”

Solo expo at The Art of September


In my art practice, I use materials such as ink and clay. Both show intriguing transitions from wet to dry. They also respond dynamically to the combination of different materials.

I search for new possibilities based on ancient materials and forms. 

That is important to me as a Korean-Japanese with a fragile identity to dig up my roots.The process of marking and repairing also resembles tracing personal memories and recovering from past pain.

In “Talking to her II”, I question myself what it means to carry on a tradition. With ink paintings and ceramic objects, I explore how different cultural experiences impact identity.
