About the Artist
Jenny Cho is currently in her last semester here at Cal State Long Beach. She will be graduating with her Bachelors of Fine Arts in drawing and painting. Cho is interested in mixing different mediums together to create interesting new works of art.
Cho’s exhibit, INPROCESS, uses several different medias combined to create one piece of cohesive work. She had pieces of work that was created by following a set of rules, it was called systems paintings. In her work, she liked to use bright colors and for some of the works of art she liked to use sharp angles and straight lines.
When talking to Cho, she talked about how part of her exhibit was about her and her feminity. Three of the pieces were put together to create herself portrait. It was her face that was then covered with a thin layer of paint and covered in kisses. The second piece was a mold of her best that were then combined with plants and electrical wires. The last piece was a piece of wood ingrained with a version of her vagina, and then hair was added to it to make it seem more realistic. Cho loved that she was able to play around with the ideas of feminity in her exhibit.
Overall I really enjoyed looking at her gallery and hearing her talk about her works of art. I loved that she was willing to really put herself out there and show the aesthetic. I enjoyed how she also used colors and that she also mixed her medias and created work that I have never seen before.
