Jihye Baek is an artist and photographer born in 1986 in Seoul; She received a Bachelor’s Degree from Kingston University in England and a Master’s Degree from Pratt Institute in New York, U.S.A. Currently residing in New Jersey, she works on photography and mixed-media on the basis of female psychology and sociology.
My current work in photography and mixed media deals with the abstract experience of motherhood and domestic life. Images of domestic space and surreal still life images reflect on the happiness of life which create a tension between happiness and sense of emptiness; implicitly and explicitly, suggesting psychological disquiet. Metaphorically, my works are a reference to memories based on unexpected emotions.
