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.
