4:00 pm-4:30 pmSuna (Amy) Kim '18 presents "Na Hye-Sok: The First Korean Female Painter in Paris" McWethy Hall
Kim's brief presentation reflects her senior thesis research in art history. Korea’s first female painter, Na Hye-Sok, pursued a career in Western oil painting during the time of Japanese colonization, and this meant that she had to study in Japan although her goal was to develop her own Korean artistic voice. Her career as a painter has been further overshadowed by her literary works today; however, a Korean exhibition described her visual work as a reflection of a tragic artist and compared her life to that of Frida Kahlo and Camille Claudel in 2003. Up until this point, few scholars have even mentioned her role as a painter. Paris, between 1927 and 1929, provided not only a space for Na Hye-Sok to experience modern art and fashion, but the city also introduced her first-wave feminism and the potential for women in Korea.
