Hanna Jaeun’s arresting imagery speaks to each one of us on a deeply personal and individual basis, about aspects of our existence which are also profoundly discrete and associated with the realms of solitary contemplation. Such themes as isolation, dreams and conceptions of an afterlife, are presented within a symbolic surrealism filtered through a dark fairy tale aesthetic. Jaeun’s passion for nature and her belief in the power of animal symbolism have led to her expressions and explorations of the human condition via the universality and intuitive emotional associations we project onto non-human creatures. And while her most recent work retains a wealth of wildlife, a stronger emphasis has been placed on her human protagonists, encouraging immediate connections and allowing her narratives to flourish, taking on more impact than ever. (From WOWXWOW interview)
Hanna Jaeun is a fine artist living and working in transition to Los Angeles. She earned a BFA in Apparel Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Upon graduating she decided to pursue her ultimate dream of becoming a painter, and to this day remains largely self-taught in this field, constantly pushing forward through the perils of trial and error. As an merging artist within the New Contemporary Art scene, Hanna’s work is becoming very sought after and has been shown in prominent galleries worldwide!
