Myung Jin Choi is a sculptor, installation artist and a storyteller. Born in Korea, she has lived in the United States for the past five years and briefly in Canada while serving as a visiting Assistant Professor at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She received her MFA from the State University of New York New Paltz in 2003. Choi's work mirrors her history evidencing her life's experiences and travels. Each piece she creates recalls a memory, capturing the essence and feeling of a specific time and place. Her work lacks a recognizable style other than the use of a singular form in a repetitive way. Forms can be sharp and hard-edged, rounded and soft, can be floating in space or firmly rooted, projecting out from the wall or mounded on the floor. The style she chooses to work in reflects the method best suited for the translation of her ideas.
