artist statement & bio

  Artist Sung Ah Cho was born in Seoul, Korea in 1967 and she now lives and works in Vancouver, BC.

  She brings the accumulation of trivial but certain happiness that comes from daily life as a foundational inspiration for her creative process. As a foreigner living in and surrounded by full of unfamiliarity, she began to consciously search for trivial comforts within her daily life; whether it is a time that she spends in home, an object that brings her stability, or an excerpt from readings that she makes connection of, she preciously gathers and reinterprets them through highly compacted imagery, resulting a series of vibrant illustrative paintings.
