Sung Won Yun
(b. Korea)
Lives and works in New York
Sung Won Yun is a mixed media artist whose work evokes the congeries of time in an emotional space through organic shapes. Her inspiration comes from plants: objects the artist feels demonstrate the basic processes of life and offer a feeling of serenity.


During her artistic process, Yun records observations of plants including their biological details, root development, and changes to the stem and leaves over time. From these studies, she creates abstract shapes that symbolize life forms floating in an infinite universe. Eventually, the layers of shapes begin to accumulate and are superposed over one another. Each layer finds a new integration in its universe through a dynamic trajectory, linking together the past, present and future. Yun works in several mediums including painting and photography, but all her pieces are interactive, allowing the viewer to react through surroundings, lighting and distance.
