Artist Lecture: Sangmi Yoo
Born in Korea, Sangmi Yoo is a professor and associate director of art at Texas Tech University. Yoo received her MFA in printmaking from The Ohio State University and her BFA in painting from Seoul National University.
Her recent work is informed by and comments on housing and the built environment. Her recent sculptural prints are dawn from her childhood memories of New Village houses from Korea and everyday encounters of standardized residential homes from living in West Texas. Her work explores visual systems and patterns in these architectural forms and ways they reflect both social conformity and individualization. Many of her recent prints take the form of installations of large-format digital prints and laser cuts which are based upon patterns created from residential homes, colonial botany, and dazzle camouflage. Visit her website, sangmiyoo.com, for more of her innovative work.
In conjunction with her campus visit, Yoo will present Traced Revisited, an exhibition of her works in the Printmaking Showcase Gallery on the second floor of the UT Art + Architecture Building, and will collaborate virtually with students in printmaking on a publically displayed art project.
Her exhibition, collaboration, and virtual campus lecture is sponsored by the Center for Student Engagement with assistance from the UT Print Club.
