About this Image:
Individual Story VI – I Am Here is a stone lithograph; Nam used only crayon to create this image and it is based on photographs he took himself. Nam depicts a grass-covered Time Square, transforming what was once the pulse of New York City into a ghost town; what may appear as the mecca of popular culture is silenced, reminding us that social class and access to information, finances, and the internet are defining culture in a global economy. American culture, often focused on assimilation, can leave the cultural outsider isolated, as if in a remote field where the masses of people become blades of grass, slowly growing over, engulfing and burying the vestiges of culture that remain in this modern metropolis.
Chunwoo Nam was born in Seoul, Korea and holds degrees from the University of HongIk, Korea, the Tamarind Institute for Lithography, NM and the University of Buffalo, NY. His work is exhibited internationally and he has taught at the Herron School of Art in Indiana. His work can be found in the following collections: Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Japan, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan, R.O.C, Kennedy Museum of Art, OH, the Novosibirsk State Art Museum, Russia, and more.
