Subin Cho, BFA '23 Peony & Cat

9.75h x 7.75w x 0.75d

DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Framed, Oriental Painting on Hanji

ARTIST STATEMENT: This is Minhwa, Korean folk art produced mainly by unknown artists without formal training. Minhwa serves the purpose of everyday use or decoration. People believed it had the power to protect their family and possess beneficial virtues. The meaning of the painting differs by the subject matter. Peony and cat in this artwork each represent wealth and longevity in Korean culture. I wished my family good while creating this piece. I wish all the best to every single person who meets this painting.
