A tribute to Women and Nature
Born in 1957 in Korea, Jung Jong Mee is an artist of remarkable talent, celebrated for her mastery of hanji, a traditional Korean paper crafted from the fibers of mulberry trees. Through her experiments with pigment and paper along with her exploration of color, she is an artist who gives a new language to both form and content of Korean painting. Her artistic repertoire is deeply rooted in her profound admiration of the strength and resilience embodied by women. Coming of age in the conservative milieu of Daegu, Jung Jong Mee’s upbringing significantly influenced her artistic path. The nurturing presence of women in her life, particularly her mother and grandmother, fueled her fascination with the female experience. This early exposure cultivated a deep sense of empathy and understanding for the women who played vital roles in shaping her world.
