My paintings reflect upon questions of power and trauma as a transnational woman painter. My identity feels fragmented but bound together as I look back on my memories in the United States and memories growing up in a patriarchal Korean family. Also the confusion from living in a Korean family and at the same time being as an artist wanting to depict the new ideas of the body and beauty is being stated in my paintings. I have different experiences through cultures; relationships, immigration and living in the post-modern city, San Francisco. This thread of experiences is shown through each piece. By Objectifying the body with my visual language, the perceptions and idealization of beauty are being asked.
