Mirang Wonne interprets natural forms in unexpected mediums. She uses primarily synthetic materials that paradoxically amplify the organic intensity of those forms, capitalizing on their physical and optical peculiarities. In her recent screen work, Wonne “draws” on fine stainless steel mesh using a blowtorch. By transforming an industrial material, the artist achieves results that are unpredictably subtle and intimate.

After receiving her BFA and finishing MFA courses from Seoul National University, Wonne continued her studies in France were she earned her diploma in mural painting from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Art Decoratifs in Paris, and her PhD in Esthetics from Universite de Paris, Sorbonne.

Mirang Wonne’s artwork has been collected and shown in private and public collections worldwide, including the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, University of San Francisco School of Law, the Ritz Carlton San Francisco, the Triton Museum, the de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University, Kaiser Permanente of Santa Clara, Stanford Cancer Center South Bay, Stuart Collection at UC San Diego, Sungkok Museum in Seoul, South Korea and the Musee d’Art Moderne de Paris.
