In my work, I explore the interconnectedness of experience, memory and cultural influence. Born in the United States to Korean parents, I grew up in France and Canada, with a fluid sense of identity, as being in between cultures. I utilize the framework of classical still life painting, to portray Asian female subjects close to me with strength and autonomy. My unconventional juxtapositions, dream-like and sensitively painted in oil, reflect my ongoing effort to understand Korean-ness.
