Abstract (Summary)

Cultural aspects of South Korea fueled my artistic production for my Master of Fine Arts Project exhibition, Desire. The images of palaces, dollhouses, and castles that I depicted not only represented social expectations of wealth and social standing, but also fantasies many Koreans have about what it means to be successful a "desire" for wealth and improved social standing. With relief printed imagery, I created an environment where viewers walked through a labyrinth-like path, experiencing the fluid motion of psychological space. I aimed to visualize the acute societal pressures, which many young South Koreans suffer under.
