My name is Chun Hui Pak. I came from Korea to the United States, and I enjoy both my new homeland and my Asian Heritage. I currently live near Austin, Texas and maintain a studio space at Canopy Austin.. I’m a former ArtServe Michigan grant recipient and art competition winner.
My twin passions are my love of painting contemporary artworks and my long and continuing interest in the ancient Asian paper-folding art of origami. My artworks often seek to explore the synergies of interpreting origami fold structures as oil on canvas paintings. My Zen Black Iris I - shown below - is the first of a planned series of paintings that pay homage to Georgia O'Keeffe and her famous Black Iris painting.
