Artist Statement

Throughout her rich and diverse career, Misoon has primarily focused on abstract visual art. Her mixed media work is a form of thoughtful extraction using endless color palette and textures that our surrounding offers: drawing out elements from aqueous vistas- rain, water, sky-capes, landscapes and other environment structures.  Her work strengthens and triggers our visceral rather than descriptive intellectual relationship to the viewer to inspire stories, feelings, emotions and memories in our lives.
