dc.description.abstractThe process of my printing begins with the drawing of an image using ink and a brush on an acetate film. The act of drawing allows me to release my emotions and I experience a calmness, satisfaction and happiness. This is a form of spiritual practice. I learned calligraphy when I was young and when I use sumi ink now, I am brought back to my childhood. The images in my drawings originated from Korean; I was born and raised in Korea and my native language is Korean. Making drawings like this is a longing for my language, an unconscious gesture. Since completing my undergraduate studies in the United States, I have not resolved the confusion towards my artistic identity that I felt since I was an undergraduate student. I still have to define it: one that exists somewhere between the complex histories of the East and West.en_US
