Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Acrylic on ceramic on wood, mixed media

The little pig figurines are symbolic of all people.
The bright colors and tiny patterns on them represent the many different kinds of people in NYC.
For example, the pigs with a heart marking represent people in love. The pigs with a bandage represent a wounded or hurt person. Pigs with stars represent the starry-eyed people with big dreams. The bright colors have been purposely used to create a light City vibe.
Each pig figurine measures 0.5" x 1" x 0.5".
All of the pigs are made out of ceramic painted with acrylic.
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(wood panel) is ready to hang on a wall.

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.
