Resident Artist in January 2020


“I have a passion for sculpture
but I’m good at drawing.
However, I always want to be a painter,
but my work usually ends up with installation art.”

Originally from Korea, emerging artist KwonY_K has travelled and studied in 28 countries before settling in Hobart for her arts practice.

KwonY_K draws, paints, washes, sands and scratches the surface of the paper to create an abstract atmosphere of transience.

KwonY_K’s installation work Yes! Your Name in Lights was installed at Salamanca Arts Centre in the Young Building Stairwell in December 2019.
