It was such a pleasure to host past two-time Fellow Eunju Kang as our first Pollock-Krasner Resident of 2024! After completing back-to-back Fellowship seasons in 1989-1990 and 1990-1991, Kang once again returned in February 2024 to create new work in FAWC’s Michael Mazur Print Studio. Her gorgeous prints often incorporate pieces of Provincetown’s landscape, and gives the viewer the lively sense of spontaneity for which Kang is known. At eunjukangarts.com she describes the element of the unexpected that inspires her to make art: 

My love for mono printing never ends! Each day a surprise, something spontaneous, both intended and not intended. On my daily bike ride, I find beauty in nature and in everyday life, sometimes in the most mundane places. As I get older, I stop and take in what I see: colors, shapes, flowers, sky. All of these images come with me to the studio. I add, subtract, blur, clear, and then the surprise of it all comes, a simple gesture both deliberate and not deliberate! This unexpected outcome drives me every day.   

Born and raised in Daegu, Korea, Kang moved to California as a teenager with her mother and two sisters in the 1970s. She earned fine art degrees at UC Santa Barbara and Pasadena Art Center College of Design where she graduated with distinction. She has been awarded residencies from The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Vermont Studio Center. She has taught at the L.A. County High School for the Arts, the ArtCenter College of Design, and the School of Visual Art in NYC. Her fine art is in private collections around the world, and her illustration work has been used in packaging and ad campaigns by Godiva Chocolate, Aveda, Simon & Schuster, and many others. Since the early 1990s, Eunju has lived and worked in New York City, painting, printmaking, and turning her doodles into a successful business with her sisters.
