HyeYoon Song is a Korean born artist who works and resides in San Francisco Bay area. She was raised in Auckland, New Zealand and came to the States in 2003. She received her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 with emphasis in Painting and Print-media. Her work combines figuration of the natural environment accompanied by abstraction, expanding the tradition of abstract expressionism. She explores the ephemeral personality of nature by examining the immediate space before her distilling much of the elements while playing with distortion of space and scale. The lack of narration and motionless imagery allows familiarity and yet discomfort of unidentifiable space.
HyeYoon holds a teaching position at the Youth Art Exchange organization as a Printmaking Faculty and also at Mission Grafica as an Etching instructor.
