Yejin Yoo

Log-in to Favorite

Yejin Yoo uses digital space as a continuum of traditional studio practice that is based on individual and emotional expressions. In the virtual lab, she mixes ingredients of physical textures/marks and illusional/illuminating pixelations to paint internal universe. Stemming from the traditional abstract painting, the subject and object of her work links to a kind of simulation of life, a way to express violence, transformation and wonder where visual space is a vessel and actualized message itself. Yejin received BFA and MFA with an emphasis in painting and installation in 2007 from the School of Visual Arts, NY. She worked as an Art Director and Production Designer and later went on to receive her MPS in Art Therapy in 2016 from SVA. Yejin is a reiki master practitioner and facilitates Reiki and Art Healing Circle as well as Art Therapy group sessions at non-profit organizations in NY. She hopes to continue combining art, energetic practices, and technology as a means to connect with self and others.
