Eunjung Park   

Eunjung Park’s work includes painting, sculpture, and drawing.  She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Born in South Korea, Park received her BA from Kookmin University, her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the summer of 2017.  Her experiences as an immigrant led to her interest in adaptation and change in both biological and cultural spheres.  Park explores this topic by layering images from multiple sources, such as human biology and botany.  She sees painting as a process of both mutation and migration—as she works, the forms appear, combine, transform and displace one another, spread throughout the canvas, disappear, and evolve into new images.  They are in a constant state of flux, reenacting the transformations taking place within her at both cellular and cultural levels.

Park’s work has been exhibited at the Bronx Museum, Below Grand Gallery, Sarah Crown Gallery, Doosan Gallery, 1969 Gallery, Vox Populi, the Spring Break Art Show, Napoleon Gallery, the Riggs and Leidy Gallery at MICA, Nanji Publication Center, and SeoGyo Art Center in Korea.  She participated in the Triangle Residency New York, Bronx Museum AIM Program, the Vermont Studio Center Residency, The Studios at Mass MoCA,  and was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Artscape Prize.  Her work has been appeared in Brooklyn Rail, New American Paintings, Hyperallergic and Bomb magazine.
