Cathy Choi finds inspiration from the physical and metaphysical qualities of water, painting with pigmented resin. The phenomenon and sensation of color is what ultimately drives her work. Her intention is not a literal representation of natural elements. Instead, she uses these references to point toward spiritual notions of purity, cleansing, and beauty.
Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally at the UMASS Herter Gallery (Amherst, MA), D.U.M.B.O. Arts Center, (Brooklyn NY) and Galerie Karrer (Zurich, CH). Choi’s work in graphic design has been recognized with awards from AIGA (1993, 1994) Art Director’s Club of Philadelphia (1994) and I.D. Magazine (1993, 1994).
