Sun Hong studied art education at the University of Georgia, with a concentration in drawing and painting. Through the formal elements of art (line, shape, color, and space), Hong explores various dichotomies which exist in art, nature, and in our individual lives.
Often, there is an apparent push and pull found in the imagery: organic versus geometric, shape versus form, foreground versus background, and negative versus positive space. The scale of the space is also ambiguous, flipping between micro or macro. Predictable patterns soon become random interactions and interruptions. This need for repetition, structure, and predictability in contrast with the need for randomness, freedom, and spontaneity is a reoccurring theme reflected in her work.
