Artist Statement

My works traverse various aspects of the Korean diaspora and delve into themes such as Korean culture, shamanism, mythology, intergenerational trauma, and the representation of matriarchs within my family. My paintings explores the power dynamics, resilience, and the emotional terrain of their experiences.

Through the use of shamanism and Korean mythology, I link the connections between myth, spirituality, and reality. This allows me to create fantastical narratives that reflect both personal and collective experiences of the Korean diaspora, while illuminating the complexities of identity and heritage.
