Kaelynn Hong is interested in collective events that contain human experiences. Her work can be seen as a material attempt to understand and mimic cycles that ebb and flow in spite of us.
Hong describes herself as a “perennial pedestrian, with a love for papermaking and open vistas.” Her work incorporates a multitude of colors mixed with acrylic paint and handmade kozo paper, creating unique pieces that intrigue the viewer’s eye.
Hong was born in Hefei, China, and immigrated to the United States when she was 8 years old. In 2011, she received her BFA from the State University of New York at Potsdam.
