    -By Catriona Warren

    “How do you capture the soul of a light switch, a laptop screen or a £10 note?”
    Ask Suan. Her interpretations of inanimate everyday objects, usually rendered actual size, seek to describe how those things make her feel rather than what they look like. Thus a packet of cigarettes reverberates with sort of talismanic energy, while her suitcase-representative of her long journey from Korea to study in London- has an almost palpable sadness about it.

  • Artist note

    “I paint everyday objects. The things that I see and use every day are transformed by a humble vision into a fantasy landscape or space. I try to read the objects as a portal through which I can see another world. I try to communicate sense and feeling through an object.”
