My work is focused on the body. My interest in the discourse of the body originated in 2009 when I moved from Korea to New York to study Art. I was under extreme stress as I was struggling to make myself at home in a "foreign" environment, which included learning to speak and to write in English. I tried my best to remain clam on the surface and pretended I was fine, but underneath I was constantly upset and disappointed with myself. There are hundreds of different languages, Visual Arts, I believe can be a much more powerful means of human expression than verbal languages. An artwork can express an incredibly board spectrum of feelings and thoughts. I believe artistic expression is limitless. My artworks are what best articulated my thoughts and emotions. This is why I make art.
