Biography

Korean-born artist Sohyun Bae vividly remembers milkmaids and egg vendors coming to her home when she was a child to deliver goods. The images of these frail and yet strong women stuck in her mind and became the subjects for many of her paintings. Appropriating rice paper and Korean cloth, Bae transforms these materials, creating figurative and abstracted representations of Korean womanhood and simultaneously commenting on the lack of female portraiture in Korean culture. Bae, who has a Master’s from Harvard in Religious Studies, also frequently imbues her works with ancient mythology and religious imagery.
