Seunghwui Koo creates her works drawing inspiration from the daily happenings and intricate moments of her life in NYC. Her work is a commentary on the lives of New Yorkers as she has witnessed. She was born in South Korea, where she first had the idea of combining the pig’s head and human body. The significance of the pig’s head lies in the different symbolic meanings from the Eastern and Western cultures. Good fortune (Eastern) and greed (Western), two very different connotations of the pig, are themes that are a part of her works. She has drawn upon her experiences from living in New York City for eight years as the source of her subject matters. She uses resin, acrylic, plaster, clay, and mixed media to create her works.

” My work is highly inspired by the beauty of the anatomy and the classic conception of academic sculpture, with a pinch of trashy pop-culture.” – Jacques De Oliveira Cezar

Self-taught artist. Mercado has taken part in more than a dozen group and solo exhibitions in Puerto Rico and the United States since 1989. Considered a conceptual artist more than a painter and designer, he is influenced by Pop and Experimental art. His early works included impressions of his own body on cloth, which he achieved by drenching himself entirely in paint. He later worked with mixed media and collages and subsequently with abstraction. Within the Pop style, he has worked on portraits that capture the essence and feelings of the model. Mercado is highly committed with his work. The fundamental aspects of this artist production are grounded in his dedication to the medium as well as his compromise with his point of view. The search for new ways of expression has lead him to gradual changes in his point of view and stylistic modifications. Link.

” My arts practice and research outputs are generated by a ‘thinking through making’ approach, using my creativity to open up paths of enquiry that are initiated by my engagement with materials and the forms being created. Examples of which are the use of ‘nude’ tights, seen as pseudo skins, and whilst interacting with them I created the ‘Life sucks’ works which opened up research into the sagging skin and the coding of the feminine on the surface of the body. Many of the other works, mainly consisting of soft sculptures, textiles and drawings, take on this discursive approach and all largely focus on the visceral or skin as the main motifs. ” – Rebecca Harris
