Cathy Choi, visual artist, painter. Finding inspiration from the physical and metaphysical qualities of water, Cathy Choi paints with pigmented resin, pouring thin veils of or pooling color using a sculpted ledge. The luminosity and fluid, a changeable shape of water are recalled in areas of cascading color and voluminous drips, referring toward spiritual notions of purity and cleansing. Born in Seoul, South Korea, the artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn. New York. Choi received her BFA from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA and her MFA from American University in Washington, DC. Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally at the Hunterdon Art Museum (Clinton, NJ), UMASS Herter Gallery (Amherst, MA), D.U.M.B.O. Arts Center, (Brooklyn NY) and Galerie Karrer (Zurich, CH). Choi’s work in graphic design has been recognized with awards from AIGA (1993, 1994) Art Director’s Club of Philadelphia (1994) and I.D. Magazine (1993, 1994).
