Jenny Cho’s art pieces come from a very feminist stand point. She was born in South Korea until the age of 2. Her background allowed her to explore her culture and gave her art meaning. She is currently finishing her last semester towards achieving her BFA in CSULB’s School of Art’s Drawing and Painting Program. Jenny Cho loves to rework a lot of her art because she believes that its makes it more abstract as you edit it. She believes that everyone can interpret art in their own way which is why her art is not to meant to make a statement.
One of my favorite things about this exhibition and artist was the fact that the tools she used are endless. Jenny Cho’s art includes all sorts of materials from nylon to wood to even doll parts. Not only do the materials she chose for her art pieces give an extra dimension to her work, they also draw her audience in which can allow them to be apart of her art.
Personally I really liked Jenny Cho’s art because it speaks to society about women. Also I think its a great idea to always keep chasing certain pieces and adding to them because just like how our perception can change , so can art. I think she enjoyed wanting to create abstract art because then it leaves a broader area for her audience to explore. Her art was not only immersive but it also issued powerful messages on gender identity and feminism.
