Week 14 – Artist Interview – Yireh Elaine Kwak


In week 3 was when I first saw Yireh Elaine Kwak’s art work, and I liked it from the beginning. When I found out that she was displaying another show I got very excited too see more of her art. She talked about how much she likes the process of making her art this time a lot more compared to the week 3 where she focused more about what her art meant.

She described her paintings as her kids. Every mother likes to spend as much time as she can with her children so they can turn out to be successful adults. Yireh tries to make her paintings as perfect as she can. What I liked most about her was her work ethic, she is constantly creating art, if she is not painting she is sketching, just like an athlete who trains everyday to be better.


Above are my two favorite art works from the show.
