CHO Yea Jae's art provides unique insights to life filled with hope and compassion in the midst of a world that is grappling with angst and transition, according to The White Room Gallery Founder and co-owner Andrea McCafferty. "Female strength, grace, sensuality and wisdom are illuminated throughout each piece with masterful fluency and feeling," McCafferty stated. "So does a humanitarian presence that manifests through precise minimalist paintings."
CHO Yea Jae was born in South Korea in 1971. An artist of contrast, she aims to illuminate the attraction of opposites culled from her continuous observation of the world around her. CHO Yea Jae travels broadly and she possesses a strong sense of empathy. Her art is infused by her belief that humanity is strong and beautiful with the new series designed to inspire a message of hope. CHO Yea Jae largely works in Korea and Europe. Most recently, her art was the subject of solo shows held in Hong Kong, Singapore and Paris. Click here to visit her website for details.
