These Monochromatic paintings combine Korean aesthetics with Eastern philosophy with WesternModernist practices. Numerous small textures are repeated in multiple layers, like a Buddhist monk inan attempt to reach Nirvana. These lines are inspired by the Korean alphabet and glyphs. The finalpainting is achieved with the thick layers of paint in clay-like stroke, distinguishing her work fromothers. The painting is imbibed with a coating of Swarovski crystal dust that gives it an ethereal andotherworldly feeling.
