Born in Seoul, Hannah Shin brings to her work an acute awareness of the tradition of oriental mark-making but in a very contemporary guise. Inspired by the cardinal importance of light, her paintings combine a highly confident use of line, colour and balance to convey a sense of vibrancy and energy as we are drawn into their layered surfaces.
