This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents a new body of work by Sunyoung Seo that perform as abstract reflections of the artist’s emotions that delve into her unconscious thoughts. Her work employs playful imagery that incorporates typical materials, such as fabrics and stuffing found in toys, which speak in a universal way to both children and adults. She is inspired by children’s drawings, which show a psychological interpretation of environmental space. In a whimsical way, Seo’s paintings and installations explore her thoughts about the contradictory relationship between the material world and art culture.

Seo seeks to transform the material world into the visual through turning ordinary imagery into vibrant mutated forms. These forms reveal human emotions, such as religiosity, jealousy, mortality, desire that are integral to her life and culture around her. Her paintings and sculptures represent who she is as well as become symbols for who we all are as humans. Through provocative objects and compositions, expressed with vivid color, Seo intends to draw the viewer’s attention to meaningful relationship between seemingly disparate aspects of common human experiences, which reflect the diverse cultures and languages coexisting in New York City.

Seo received her MFA from C.W. Post Long Island University, attended the Fashion Institute of Technology for toy design, and earned her BFA in Korea. She has extensively exhibited in the United States and Korea. Universities and several private collections in United States and Korea own her works. In addition, She attained a VSC grant from the Vermont Studio Center and her installations have been exhibited in public parks and community centers.
