Yunhee Huh’s drawings use universal visual metaphors combined in new ways to open an East-West dialog. She often enlarges her works to monumental wall-drawings, working with charcoal stick attached to a broom. In her video of these performances, the rhythmic scratching of the charcoal stick on the wall draw in the viewer. Through her works, Huh demonstrates an urgency to communicate her own experiences, often tackling facets of loss.
