Suyeon Na
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: I investigate psychology of the self, which revolves around the change of personal, social and cultural environments. I have traveled across different cities and created works since I moved to the U.S. I weave a story of my observations and imagination on various spaces and places where I reside, as well as my relationship with them, through multimedia. Problems of psychological and social adaptations are quietly represented within the narrative of my work.

The transformative power of storytelling has been a long-held interest of mine since my childhood, which I spent drawing and writing storybooks. I visualize the images of dreams, nightmares, myths, fairytales and fantasies that are closely linked to subconscious and animalistic instincts of humans as a part of nature. Meanwhile, I aim to decode and examine the complicated relationships between culture, society and human nature, through visually multi-layered narratives.

Manipulating materials is my means to alter reality. I cut, print, draw, sew, paste and connect them. I explore diverse materials and experience their characteristics, such as color, touch, weight and volume. I am particularly interested in easily transportable and flexible materials, which suggest the fluidity of the self and the complexity of the world around me. Complicated layers of meanings and narratives, which reflect my impressions and subconscious understanding about the reality that surrounds me, are physically embodied and conveyed through multiple layers of materials. The repetitive process of drawing, painting, cutting and sewing is transformed into an inexplicable world filled with imagination and fragments of reality.
