Yeonhee Cheong is a South Korea-born artist with an extensive background including art, fashion, and upholstery in the U.S. Inspired by the prairie of Wisconsin, she has explored the meaning of composition, color, and texture by the bodies of living entities including human beings. More recently she began to focus on how to endow her subjects power and dignity in both figurative and abstract images. Currently she focuses on feminist issues related to women’s bodies, while trying art practices between art institution and commerce to approach the viewers and induce voluntary participation in their everyday lives. She has earned a M.F.A. degree in Design Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017.
