Sung Hee Cho is a visionary artist, who makes images through the use of ‘hanji’, a traditional art-making process using Korean paper. Often Cho’s works appear as a monochrome surface, such as bright red, soft grey or pure white. In constructing the surface of her works, the artist uses a collage method in which many circles are hand-cut or gently torn, then layered with oil pigments and placed one atop another. Cho successfully combines a traditional Korean sensibility with her unique vision and personal narrative. Her works explore the complex relationship between colour and texture through a labour intensive, time-consuming process. Her works explore a search for a national identity, reminiscent of the Monochrome Art Movement, from the late 1960s to the 1980s, recalling artists like Seo-bo Park (b.1931) and Young Woo Kwon (b.1926). The Monochrome Movement was a generation of artists who combined Asian philosophies with Western training. Cho Sung Hee’s works have been exhibited and collected in various prestigious private and public institutions including Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Sejong Art Centre in Seoul, Telentine Art Centre in Chicago, L.A. Korea Cultural Service, Los Angeles, New York Cultural Service, Mutual Saving and Finance Company in Seoul and Domino Foods, Inc, New York.
