Yeonjoo Cho is currently undertaking a practice-led PhD project at the Glasgow School of Art. 

Painterly hybridisation: a new mode of practice that appropriates the cultural dichotomy of Oriental/Western painting

Cho's research explores how the hybrid painting practice that juxtaposes ink and oil painting’s characteristics could dismantle the cultural dichotomy of Oriental/Western painting. Focusing on three academic fields—postcolonial theories, East Asian art history, and contemporary painting practice—the project aims to reconsider the problematic yet prevalent taxonomy of 'Oriental/Western', developing an alternative framework.

Supervised by Dr Marianne Greated & Dr Ranjana Thapalyal
