For artist Kyong Boon Oh, each of her artworks represents her journey of life, walking one step at a time. Life is a pilgrimage. Transcendent end is hidden in our own depths, waiting for the chance to occupy a conscious moment. She tries to be in the moment through putting herself in the position of labour-intensive repetition in a very slow and meditative manner. This process clarifies her mind and releases her from the ambiguity of life. For Kyong, this sculpture is like a newly-discovered road, which is intertwined in complexity, but in order.
Korean-born Kyong-Boon Oh received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002, and her BS in Mathematics from Korea University in Korea in 1996.
She was a painter before health issues forced her to stop painting. Now she is sculpting and a founding member of SSGOC (Stone Sculptors Guild of Orange County).
