Artist Statement:
"My practice attempts to investigate identities (myself as a painter, Korean, American, immigrant, and woman) by deconstructing paintings. I use the process of stripping paint away as a gesture that corresponds to my ideas about awareness and in essence shaving layers off of myself. 

 

To make my paintings I start with mixing acrylic paint and then I pour. When the paint dries, I peel the brittle layers and physically reshape the paint film. This is a part of the process of deconstructing the components of the painting; I separate paint, support and content. Then I focus on creating the combination of these elements. Even though I feel the uncomfortable realm of craft borderline and reaching the three-dimension, this performative act of the peeling paint has brought me comfort and empowerment."
