INTRODUCING TAI HWA GOH
March's Work In Progress Resident
Tai Hwa Goh is an artist working with printmaking and installation, born in Seoul, Korea, where she spent her childhood years through college. Tai Hwa Goh’s installation work pushes the boundaries of traditional printmaking from two-dimensional images on paper to three-dimensional sculptural installations that transform spaces. Seeing the natural world and the human body inextricably connected to each other, Goh uses tubes, pipes and orbs that spew forth flowing strips of paper, suggesting cycles of the body, industrial machinery and natural phenomena, as well as the unending processes of growth and decay.
During the Work In Progress residency, Tai Hwa Goh will go beyond the hand-pulled prints. She will be recycling "old prints", such as old clothes, t-shirts, jeans, laces, curtains, phone book pages, gift wraps, magazines, wallpapers, old letters, old note books, etc., and transforming these used materials into three-dimensional objects.
Goh earned an MFA from the University of Maryland, as well as an MFA and a BFA from Seoul National University, Korea. She has been featured in US and international exhibitions.
You can visit Tai Hwa Goh's installation for Work In Progress from March 3 - 31, at TAC Manhattan studio, and learn more about her work and process during Artist Open Hours, on Saturdays 2-5PM.
