  1. Town Hall Public Art Commission Exhibit

    November 4 - December 22 @ Town Hall

    2014 - November/December - Jieun Shin - Recent Watercolors Artist statement by Jieun Shin: My recent work combines fragmented details of patterns and images from traditional Korean folk art. It includes patchwork wrapping clothes by anonymous women from 18th century Joseon Dynasty, Korea. As an artist and immigrant, I represent my psychological relationship to my homeland by exploring my culture. Ironically, while I borrow the colors and patterns in my work from historic Korean textiles and embroidery, my work seems to be unidentifiable in terms of cultural specificity. My work is a surrogate portrait of a migrant, both estranged by and familiar with the hybrid cultural predicament symbolized by modern grid patterns and my own distant “ethnic” culture. My intention is to explore my individual identity as a female.
