Christina Yoo

Born in South Korea; Lives and works in Los Angeles.

Christina Yoo has been part of the ECF Art Centers community for nearly a decade, during which she has been a continuous source of inspiration to both her peers and mentors. Her work is a dedicated and ongoing study of the natural world and her place within it, as such her paintings often contain a mixture of objective observation and surrealist interpretations of the quotidian. This amalgamation between the commonplace and the fantastic are aesthetically reinforced via her energetic brushwork and lively palette which function in sharp contrast to the common subject matter at center of her work.

The therapeutic function of her practice is not only bound to aesthetic or conceptual dimensions, for Yoo, art has also proven to be therapeutic in improving her physical dexterity.
