Korean-born and New York-based visual artist Suyeon Na investigates the fluidity of the self and the complexity of the world around her, by manipulating images sourced from newspaper, fashion magazines and patterns on the surface of fabrics we see every day. Na mines the imagery from fairytales, mythology, and Asian folklore which influenced her childhood, and combines them with the remnants of today’s world. In her work, the crystalline collages made with fabric, paper and sequins are mingled with watercolor-painted, mythological figures, often females and animals. While surrounded by lavish colors and textures, these characters quietly deliver psychological narrative about the issues of social and cultural adaptation, gender, love and intimacy.

Na received a BFA from Seoul National University and a MFA from Pratt Institute. Her work has been widely exhibited at numerous venues in the U.S., Korea, Japan and India.
