Sun Young Kang
祥遇 (상우 Sang-woo), 2024
Letterpress print


Artist Statement:

祥遇 (상우 Sang-woo): “A serendipitous encounter, where fortune and destiny intertwine.”


My art focuses on the duality fundamental to human existence: of different realities or worlds both in space and time and the tension between them; and of the coexistence of antithetical ideas, how death implies life, how the material realm implies the unsubstantial or nonphysical, and how absence implies presence. In 祥遇 (상우), two traditional, mythical creatures symbolize opposing forces, like water and fire, North and South, Yin and Yang. Their imagined encounter embodies harmony, the dance of contrasts, encapsulating duality’s delicate embrace, depicted through 자색 (a color merging black and red).

HyeYoon Song
rite of passage, 2024
Photopolymer etching with chine collé and screen print


Artist Statement:
Drawing from my experiences of migration and the effects of immigration on both my identity and place in American history, this piece illustrates migration as a metaphorical gesture of grafting memories and cultural tradition onto the new land. This process is akin to embodying the identity of an exiled self in a new place, a conscious and transformative engagement in pursuit of belonging. Imagining the American landscape before my arrival as once an expansive and untouched terrain, I envision the guardian animals of the east and west governing the land, awaiting the beginning of my immigrant journey.

Julia Chon
At the Center of the Universe, 2024
Woodblock print


Artist Statement:
Looking into the face of halmeoni
A woman I’ve never met
Shelling peas on a crowded street
I find myself at the center of the universe
Where nothing and everything matters
And the sweetness of life
Is reflected onto me

Rochelle Youk
단/Dan, 2024
Woodblock print


Artist Statement:
The creation myth of the Korean Kingdom begins with a sandalwood tree—the earthly site, first inhabited by the Heavenly Prince, where Korea’s ursine mother prayed to become human, and later again to become a mother. Her son, Dangun (단군), meaning the Sandalwood King, is believed to be the historical first ruler of Korea. It is unknown whether the tree was a sandalwood or birch, but the word dan (단) can mean both, in addition to being a nickname for the first king himself. The leaves of this sacred yet unassuming tree form the pattern block, which has the ability to repeat indefinitely, much like the dan 단 trees of Korea.

a/Void, 2024
Linoleum block print


Artist Statement:
Hanji is my constant for spiritual, mental, and ancestral extension. Connecting physicality to internalized constraint, hanji’s malleable nature navigates thought through tangibility. a/Void is an internal battle of compartmentalization, acknowledging folded paper as structural tools to expand internal understanding, a healing therapy to manifest tactility from an overwhelmed circle of avoidance. Like crumbled sketches thrown into the trash, folds of paper attempt order within a psyche overwhelmed. And like the colors of ogansaek, my thoughts continue its mixture of restoration with retribution.
