Wk 14 – Artist Interview – Yireh Elaine Kwak

The exhibit that I went to this week was part of the Senior Painting/Drawing BFA Show. It was called “LIMINAL.” It was filled with many unique artist. I got the chance to interview the Yireh Elaine Kwak. Her art is influenced by her personal experiences. As Kwak grew as an artist, she realized that her home and her family are what drive her artistic passion. She practices various forms of art, ranging from studio art to musical art. The art piece behind her in the picture is one that was inspired by her home, which has a beautiful view of mountains. This painting is an oil painting and in my opinion is extremely detailed. I thought it was beautifully done. She says art is always changing so she’s always trying to change with it. Kwak mentioned that as an artist, a very important part of the creative process is being able to keep an open mind. Also to be comfortable with going along with different types of creative processes. Having loved and done art since childhood, Kwak is now majoring in drawing and painting. She has decided to take one year off of school after she graduates before returning for a Masters program. During her year off, she plans on working on her portfolio and doing smaller projects. Yreh Elaine Kwak is an amazing artist.
