Eunsuh Choi gives the third of six lectures by artists featured in the 5th Rochester Biennial. Her lecture is included in Gallery admission.
Originally trained as a textile designer in her native Korea, Choi came to Rochester in 2004 and received her MFA in glass from RIT's School for American Crafts. Using such metaphors as the ladder and the tree, her quiet, meditative glass sculptures visually communicate the human longing for personal growth. "In my work," writes the artist, "I merge my eastern background and my western experiences to explore how we are all unified through ambition."
This series is underwritten by the Sandra G. Dreyfuss Education Endowment Fund.
