JEONGHAN & CHOONHYANG YUN
The Yuns have created, in their works, a unique alchemy of ancient Asian techniques and more modern Western imagery, specifically abstraction. Their “paintings” are made in the traditional method of Hanji, Korean paper-making, which they utilize in both time-honored and nontraditional ways. Both Jeonghan and Choonhyang were educated in South Korea and received BFA’s at Kemyung University, in Daegwoo, with majors in Western art. This education has formed the direction of their artwork profoundly. Mr. Yun, Jeonghan, went on to receive his MFA and became a professor at his alma mater for many years. The Yuns are gifted paper-makers, mastering a laborious, yet joyful process of creation.
