Suk Ja Kang-Engles

The paintings I've been working on this year are in a series I've labeled "Eye-con."  I'm probably not ready to talk about them yet, but I can say that they reflect my recent interest in the mutilation of Asian eyes in pursuit of Euro-white beauty standards.  The cutaway image of a mouth and throat articulating various sounds has also captured me, and so has the memory of traditional Korean landscape paintings, which I've inverted in these works.

These days I'm also working in the short video format, and also on a performance piece.  I wish I could show you these works too--maybe soon!  Thank you for your interest.
