DescriptionI use clay, as well as hand-building techniques, to blend traditional ceramic processes with multi-layered paintings to share my experiences, memories, and dreams by creating an implied narrative. I see my work as a physical manifestation of memory, and an exploration of personal history, cultural tradition, and belief systems in the contemporary world. In addition, my work draws from personal experiences and from my Korean heritage; I use physical processes to investigate diverse facets of perception to broaden emotional, physical, and cultural understandings of human experience.
