Younhee Paik

Younhee Paik (b. 1945, South Korea) was educated first in South Korea, and later in San Francisco, where she received her MFA. The Asian attributes of Paik’s work are reflected by subject and method as her pieces are about transformation and transition between the material and spiritual worlds. Her choice of symbols represents both the work of nature and humans: water and bridges, forests and ships, stars and ladders. 

 

Paik will represent the United States at the upcoming Gwangju Biennale. Paik has also shown her work in more than 40 solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Korean National Museum and was featured at the 1995 Venice Biennale. Works by Paik are held in the permanent collections of various public and private institutions across South Korea and the US, including the Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Seoul City Museum, Samsung Museum, San Jose Museum of Art, Sonoma County Museum, and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
