Mix Tape : Acrylic on Paper and Wood : 24" x 48"
Our first installment features Seonna Hong, a talented fine artist who doubles as an animation art director. Seonna received an Emmy Award for Individual Achievement in Background Styling for her work on “My Life as a Teenage Robot” presented by Nickelodeon. Seonna is working on two pieces that will feature a narrative style that is both abstract and emotional.
The Corrective Effects of a Brushfire : mixed media on paper
Seonna’s piece, "The Corrective Effects of a Brushfire" was created while the fires were burning in Los Angeles. Seonna describes, “It cast such an apocalyptic air in the city, literally, with a big black cloud of smoke looming... the tragedy of lives and homes lost. I had also been listening to the news about everything going on in the economy and that all the things that were breaking down were things that sort of needed to break down because they had been built up on this flawed foundation. I was thinking how other things in life were that way and I began thinking about how all the uncertainty didn't have to be bad or scary, but that the things that were breaking down would be corrective somehow, like a brushfire. And that it was necessary for healthy growth. I saw that as an opportunity to look at my life and my art differently. So this is the piece I made.”
