Seonna Hong balances her work as a visual development artist for animated feature films with her personal work in shows in galleries around the world. The resulting work in each field is an amalgamation of the two, yet there is also a deliberate compartmentalization. Her personal work is just that: work that culls from her experiences of human interconnectedness (or lack thereof). Her illustrative figures traverse abstract landscapes, sometimes architectural, and almost always codified with animals and various ephemera. Using found objects such as paint chips, tape, and vinyl shelf paper, Seonna looks for ways to rethink the context of these unconventional mediums and surfaces to propel the narratives she creates even further. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
