Cho Sung-Hee

Sung-Hee Cho was born in 1949 in Korea. She earned a master's degree in fine arts from the Ewha Women's University before relocating to America in 1980 where she studied at the Pratt Institute of Art in New York City and at the Art Institute in Chicago.

 

In constructing the surface of her works, Sung-Hee uses a collage method in which many circles are hand-cut or gently torn from traditional "hanji" paper, then layered with oil pigments and placed one atop another. Sung-Hee successfully combines a traditional Korean sensibility with her unique vision and personal narrative. Her works explore the complex relationship between colour and texture through a labour intensive, time-consuming process.

 

Her works have been exhibited and collected in various prestigious private and public institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; the Sejong Art Centre, Seoul; the Telentine Art Centre, Chicago; the L.A. Korea Cultural Service, Los Angeles; the New York Cultural Service; the Mutual Saving and Finance Company, Seoul and Domino Foods, Inc, New York.
