Eunju Kang, currently living in New York City, is a painter who entwines her daily life into her art. She rides her bike to the train and then to the studio, noticing nature in NYC: flowers, trees, birds--flashes of color and texture which delight her. She photographs, sketches, and sometimes stops and breathes them in. It is her daily practice.
Those images come along to her studio and mingle with the collected images of flowers, seashells, fruit and vegetables, and years of photographs and memories. As she glues, trims, and paints the memories, imageries have emerged. She builds up the paintings and shapes the experience and the memories.
Each day is a surprise for Kang. Her work is a duet of intended and not intended gesture of her painting. The unexpected outcomes are what drives her every day.
Eunju Kang was participated in exhibitions, including Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, MA, 490 Atlantic Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, Eye buzz Gallery in Tarrytown, NY, LA Artcore Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, and Yukiko Lunday Gallery in Houston, Texas, and many other. Kang is a recipient of the fellowships such as the Virginia Center for Creative Arts in VA, Vermont Studio Center in VT, and The Fine Arts Work Center in MA.
