About

CHA Seungean (1974)

 

Cha’s work appears at first glance to consist of painting on canvas. However, on closer inspection, we discover that her works are actually formed of textiles. After graduating from Hongik University with a degree in textile art and completing a M.F.A. in painting and drawing at the Art Institute of Chicago, she has continued to explore painting through the perspective of textile art with her woven canvases. The artist's current interest is to look back to the legacy of the passionately experimental 20th-century art scene, and to interweave various elements of art from this period across borders between East and West, eyesight and touch, mind and material.
