Kyung Eun You

Ridgewood, NY



I make images that linger in my memories as a way of understanding myself and the world surrounding me. I question which memories remain and why. Experiences with family issues, depression, panic episodes, and dreams have been topics in my work. Image making practice has been a means of digesting the past events, especially those that I constantly revisit. Repeating the process of remembering and transforming the memories into visual stories helps me cope with living with them.
