Yun Shin

Yun Shin’s subtle works on paper are created using repeated tracings of the same shapes, employing carbon paper, pin points, or oil paint stains. The simple grid-like forms and monotone colors lend the work a sense of minimalism, but the personal nature of her patterns—created by repeatedly copying the calligraphy of her father’s signature or patterns of her mother’s knit work—infuse the drawings with a personal tone amplified by the time-consuming nature of her process. Of her work, the artist says “Through recreating the objects bases on my own personal interpretation, I start to understand the intense process of working alone in contemplation. The more I personalize my family’s possessions, the more I am able to see myself in them.”

Shin is the Assistant Professor of Art at Northwestern College in Orange City, IA. Professor Shin has earned several art degrees, including a M.F.A. in Studio Arts from the University of Texas at Austin, a B.F.A. in Craft and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a B.F.A. in Industrial Design from Cho Sun University in South Korea. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in cities throughout the United States, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, and Minneapolis.
