Bio

Yeonjoo Cho is a Korean-born artist who currently works in Glasgow, UK. She has shown imaginary landscapes inspired by traditional Korean painting, myth, and women’s stories. Her latest practice explores the dualistic division between East and West in contemporary art and the concept of Oriental painting (동양화; 東洋畫). Research on art history and postcolonial theories has played a crucial role in her latest works, which question the previous understanding of Oriental painting as the anthesis of Western painting. Through her ongoing research, ‘Painterly Hybridisation’, Cho aims to challenge the pervasive cultural binarism and expand the meaning of Oriental painting, reflecting her cross-cultural reality.
