Fellow: Awarded 2022
Field of Study: Fine Arts

Competition: US & Canada

Min’s work, both paintings and site-projects, explores visual abstraction as an open proposition for aesthetic relationality and perception expressed with color, surface, gesture, as well as material and form. Min is interested in engendering space of individuation and experience with abstraction, resistant to fixed or dominant meaning. In this respect, color plays a large role with its delicate contingency inherent in our perception and sensation. Her work has been featured in gallery and museum exhibitions including Los Angeles County Museum of Art, UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, Art Sonje Center, Seoul, Korea, Artist Space, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles, Miles McEnery Gallery in NY among others. Min is a recipient of Korea Arts Foundation of America Artist Grant, City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Individual Artist Grant, and University of California Institute for Research in the Arts Grant.

Born in Seoul, Korea, Min holds a BFA from Art Center College of Design and Master of Design Studies from Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. She is Professor of Art at the University of California Riverside.
