S aehyun Paik (b. South Korea) attended the Samsung Art and Design Institute before moving to the United States and working as an artist in residence at Chashama in 2019. Saehyun is searching for all that the modern human experience lacks through abstract expressionism, color combination, contrast, and audacious brushwork. Saehyun experienced difficulty adapting to social situations in her early years, and learned to create dialogues and rapports through art materials as a form of escapism. Saehyun continues to explore interaction without representing human forms directly.
"Line can make a drawing, communication, it can create songs and rhythm, and it can express speed. I like to use parallel lines to make movement and elegant moods in my work. I always think many line patterns are elegant, and this is what we can find easily in our life. Examples of kitchenware, fabric and textiles, household products, fashion inspire me." -Paik
