Heeseop Yoon creates large scale installation drawings and has been exhibited in many galleries in NYC and Korea. Yoon was born in Seoul, Korea and now lives in Brooklyn, New York where she makes her artwork. She receives her BFA in 1999 at Chung-ang University in Seoul, Korea and then her MFA in 2005 at City College of New York.

Much of Yoon’s work is made of black masking tape on Mylar and then installed into a space. She considers her work as “freehand drawings” which I think is interesting and accurate. I was really drawn to her work because of the dimensional, sketchy images she creates with the tape. They create space within the drawings with overlapping of lines and emphasis on some directional lines. These remind me of forms that resemble cityscapes, which probably help with the illusions of space. One thing that I also like is the way Yoon uses the installation space as part of the work. As can be seen in images below, the tape is immersed into the space and wraps around with it. It almost becomes a part of the wall and environment because of the wrapping and the wall showing through as negative space in the images.
