About Artist

The artist has been examining various aspects of our culture through the media and methods of traditional East Asian painting.  Mainly focusing on figure and portrait painting, the artist also has dealt with themes regarding the relationship between characters and painting/scenery. In recent work, the artist seeks new ways to combine all these interests.

Artist’s Note
Meok (inkstick) has been an instrumental means of writing/visualizing East Asian ideas and imagination throughout both their history of culture and of painting.  Recently, I have been playing with this medium named meok and its various applications within a frame of portrait.
