This week’s student of the week is Sophie (Hyun-Ju) Won. Her work, although colorful and bright in nature, presents a beautiful and almost light-hearted approach to disturbing and oddball subject matters.

My work looks at the relationship between nature and man. Depending on how the audience perceives it, my work can be viewed as abstract or representational. I enjoy making images with strong impressions of colour, even if the imagery or concepts may appear disturbing to viewers. In my illustrations, I like to use a multitude of media, such as, watercolor, graphite, charcoal, conte, as well as lithographic printing techniques.
