FAR & Away Artist in Residence: Jiha Moon

Published January 3, 2022

Thanks to a South Arts Grant, Florida State University’s Facility for Arts Research and the Museum of Fine Arts are glad to welcome Jiha Moon to campus in February for an exhibition of the artists work, artist presentation and a community workshop at the Tallahassee Senior Center.

 

Jiha Moon is from DaeGu, Korea and lives and works in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Moon’s gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture, and installation explore fluid identities and the global movement of people and their cultures. She says “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds.” She is taking cues from wide ranges of history of Eastern and Western art, colors and designs from popular culture, Korean temple paintings and folk art, internet emoticons and icons, fruit stickers and labels of products from all over the place. She often teases and changes these lexicons so that they are hard to identify, yet stay in a familiar zone.
