Naomi Chung is a painter and printmaker from Virginia. Chung’s landscapes and florals reflect nature not only as an image but also as an event, in which she is able to find expressive meaning and value in the seemingly random patterns.
She regards the combined colors, textures, and movements of birds, grass and a hurricane wind as a carefully orchestrated yet unrehearsed symphony and gathers characters from the landscape allowing them to interact on the canvas. Chung explains, “Whether it’s something still and serene or overcome by the powers of a storm, I take from the landscape its ability to stir emotions associated with higher consciousness and self-awareness.” Learn more about Chung here.
