Both an artist and a chef, Yun's work explores identity and feelings of otherness. ìƒì‹¤ is comprised of reflections from her time living in the Franklin county area. As a Korean-American queer woman, Yun's art brings to light the inherent politics of identity. The following quote by author Jenny Zhang captures some of the experience Yun expresses in her art: "My privileged upbringing and education and linguistic fluency gave me such proximity to whiteness that it stung all the more to still find myself outside of it." --Jenny Zhang Yun completed her BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Printmaking from Washington University in St. Louis, along with a double major in Psychology and Brain Sciences. She was awarded the Eda L. and Clarence C. Cushing Memorial Prize in Painting (2016) and the Peter Marcus Prize in Printmaking (2017). Katie's work has been shown in multiple galleries including the Des Lee Gallery, the Duet Gallery, and the Granite City Art and Design District Gallery in St. Louis. She is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Yun's exhibit can be seen May 4 - July 1, with a reception on Saturday, May 5, 3-5pm. Improvisations on sax by Loren Feinstein. Please join us.
