Soft Solidarity: Suejin Jo

Artist Suejin Jo

Suejin Jo creates abstract swaths of color and shape across canvas with oil and acrylic paint. Her painting process is inspired by the "inlay" process of Korean potters from the 11th century. Helen Harrison of The New York Times described Jo's painting as having “the character of an ancient wall painting." Her gestural brush marks, drips and blots vibrate against each other with soulful yet fresh colors. Like the Lascaux cave paintings, her soft forms and curvilinear lines spark the imagination and evoke moods reflecting on the sorrows and joys of the pandemic.
