Shyun paints with purpose, first delineating her paintings in an intentionally quick manner, and then carefully creating a geometric abstraction as precise as her single word titles. She hopes to depict universal dynamics of life using the fewest, simplest brushstrokes, putting forward the effect of those ideas themselves without resorting to the illusion of a physical object.
Born in South Korea / Works in NY
Shyun's minimalism does the maximum in bringing out the intensity of shapes and colors. What seem like stable forms - rectangles, tubes, and lines - never sit quietly on the ground. Shyun tips these shapes on their corner, drops them over a shadow, and slices just a little of their edges like soft cheese, capturing the brief moment where the stability of geometry meets the imagination of our eyes.You'll love Shyun if: you've spent an entire Sunday morning in front of a Barnett Newman in MoMA
