Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This work expresses the social harmony of Yin-Yang, through black and white colors and contrasting surface.
Yin-yang is the perfect total of both parts, where one is essential to the other in creating harmony.
The black artwork protrudes from the surface of the artwork, while the white artwork recedes from the surface of the artwork.
I used contrasting surface and color as my technique to represent the yin and yang.

The work has many different topographical features and is visually striking.
Each pig figurine measures 0.5" x 1" x 0.5".
All of the pigs are made out of ceramic.
Each pig is handmade, a mold was not used because it is a meditative practice of hand-building in which I create imagery and objects in mass that speak to both our uniqueness and anonymity. The frame is ready to hang on a wall. Aluminum bar hanger on the back.

Artist Profile

Born: 1981

Hometown: South Korea

Based in: New York, U.S.A

Seunghwui Koo creates her works by drawing inspiration from the daily happenings and intricate moments of her life in New York City. Her work is a commentary on the lives of New Yorkers as she has witnessed. She was born in South Korea, where she first had the idea of combining the pig’s head and human body. The significance of the pig’s head lies in the different symbolic meanings from the Eastern and Western cultures. Good fortune (Eastern) and greed (Western), two very different connotations of the pig, are themes that are a part of her works. She uses resin, acrylic, plaster, clay, and mixed media to create her works.


Koo has shown her sculptural works in a number of exhibitions including Monmouth Museum, NJ, Belskie Museum of Art & Science, NJ, Newark Museum, NJ, Azarian McCullough Art Gallery, St. Thomas Aquinas College, Sparkill, NY, Main Line Art Center, PA and Kunsten Festival Watou 2017, 37th Edition, Belgium among others.
