Woodcuts: Against the Grain by Phillia C. Yi

February 25, 2017 12 – 8 p.m. January 20 – February 26
Upcoming dates:
Feb 25
Feb 26

In creating her vibrant, oversized prints, Phillia Yi draws from her native Korean and adopted American cultures, and the “dilemmas and tension of my multicultural experience.” Yi’s primary medium is woodcut—a vehicle she uses to expose an altered sense of time and scale. Full of color and movement, Yi’s pieces appear spontaneous, yet are carefully crafted as she meticulously carves her woodblocks to imitate the fluidity of traditional brush and ink.

Yi earned her M.F.A. from Temple University and her B.F.A. from SUNY New Paltz. She has taught at Hobart and William Smith Colleges—where she currently serves as chair of the Department of Art and Architecture and recently held the John Milton Potter Endowed Chair in Humanities—since 1985. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, as well as in China, Korea, and Japan.
