Grace Hong is an interdisciplinary Korean-American artist making sculptures and paintings to explore the influence of technology and digital media on our consciousness. Hong’s art practice also addresses aspects of cultural heritage, migration and immigration, and the semiotics of digital and material cultures. Her latest mixed media sculptures use plastic sheeting, polyurethane foam, wire, fibers, and found objects to create textures and abstract bodies that embody a meditative process of collecting and accumulating materials. Her paintings also deal in similar themes. Latest mediums in paint have been with acrylic or watercolor to explore memories and dreams represented by bridging abstract figures/symbols with architectural spaces. Hong became a Master of Fine Arts from Parsons The New School for Design and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Studio Arts from the University of Rochester. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn/NYC.
