Artist Statement

Min's work focuses on reconstructing contrasting images-- from the East and West, old and new, reality and illusion, artificial and natural, and genuine and hypocritical. By carefully constructing such images that have no intrinsic relationship with one another, Min evokes a strange and unfamiliar response amidst familiar cues.
Min suggests moving forward to a new phase through conflict and reconciliation between the past and the present, between the East and the West, and artificial and natural.
