Anna Westfall and Sukjin Choi’s art exhibit will be on display at the Hansen Hall Art Gallery from Jan 28 – Feb 17.
This two-person exhibition examines multicultural influences on identity through contemporary ceramics and sculpture. The artists share a similar cultural history, yet the exploration of their disciplines diverge and connect in unexpected ways.
Anna Westfall earned an M.F.A. from the University of New Mexico and a B.F.A. from James Madison University. Westfall is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work often explores the complex relationship between memories, genetics, cycles in nature and the larger system of culture that inform identity. Her sculptures and installations attempt to create the essence and energy found in the natural world while speaking to human perception and understanding of its character.
Born in Korea, Sukjin Choi received BFA and MFA degrees in Ceramics from Ewha Womans University in Korea, and a MFA degree in Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. She has had twenty-nine solo exhibitions in the United States, Australia, Canada and Korea, and has been exhibited and collected in more than 150 museums and galleries throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. She is currently a Professor of Art at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
