Catalogue Note

By paintstakingly applying multiple layers of white paint onto the canvas and later carving it as if to dig into the past, Yang Hee-Sung attempts to liberate paint and art from its conventional limitations.  The antique white color Yang chooses for the majority of her works represents white porcelain from the Yi Dynasty, when women were unappreaciated in Korea.
