Joanne Nam is orginally from Korea and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She is a recent graduate from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
Joanne describes her work by saying, “I mainly use oil paints when I create images. Most of subject matters of my paintings are from old memories. I used to live in the middle of a forest and spent a lot of my time with wild trees and animals when I was young. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of those memories. The thing I was focusing on was the impression of them. The visual images in my head are vague and hard to remember, but I believe that the feeling of it was the thing that lasts.”
