Ami Park

2023 Aim Fellow

Artist Statement

Ami Park, born in Seoul, Korea, is an artist based in New York. Being genuinely interested in the universe as the source of all things, she believes thoughts, emotions, and objects hold different vibrations at a specific frequency and in a particular direction and are all interconnected. Her work explores the vibrations between human minds and things into a theme of self-awareness, identity, and perception. This relationship, conceptualized as a spiritual link, is expressed in fiber materials such as yarn and rope. This approach exists across all mediums in her practice; painting, drawing, and mixed media.

Her work has been shown at The KuBe Art Center, Chashama, New York Live Arts, and MoMA Poprally x The Andrew Freedman Home, among others. Her recent recognitions are by the Bronx AIM Fellowship (2023), the Puffin Foundation (2022), and NYFA Immigrant Artist Program (2022). She holds BFA in Fashion Design from the Parsons School of Design.
