Fine Arts Spotlight


These two abstract art pieces are titled Filtering 1 and 2. Emphasizing simplicity of materials and relationship to family, they are layered tracings of the artist’s parents’ signatures in the packing slips of things sent her from her parents in South Korea. The pieces took eleven months of painstaking tracing work onto carbon paper until all the carbon was gone. The pieces were selected for exhibit in the A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
