kwonny (she/her b.1988, New York) is a Korean-American artist working in Seattle. Her mixed media works inhabit the space between figurative and abstract, a reflection of a nomadic upbringing where she grew up in-between identities and communities, simultaneously belonging and being out-of-place. Her practice involves collage and a technique with acrylic paint that evokes watercolor properties and suspends the paints in movement as they dry. A sense of lifelong liminality is further through the animal and mythic subjects that dominate her paintings.
