Seoul, South Korea, b. 1968

Born in Seoul, South Korea, the Korean-American Artist Joohyun Kang has been active in artistic activities, traveling between New York and Korea, after completing a master's degree in printmaking and Western painting at Pratt Institute in 1993. Through her work, the artist aims to portray the process of living an organic life within the perception that humans are limited beings, looking at nature as a medium of expression. When viewing the journey of life through nature, the artist depicts the desire to live, endure, and integrate, similar to how nature repeats creation and destruction amidst change and resistance. By incorporating conscious and unconscious dots and lines into her work, like the unexpected encounters and events that happen in life, the artist creates a process where the generated spots collide, overlap, and achieve balance, revealing landscapes and nature. The images of these landscapes are visualized through the association of memories, whether they are scenes observed in reality or landscapes that exist in dreams or the inner self. The small units that form the paintings are abstract, drawn with numerous layers that cannot be fully grasped up close, but when viewed as a whole, they become landscape paintings. Joohyun Kang's landscape paintings, which possess both abstraction and unique atmospheres, exist simultaneously as abstractions and representations.
