Soonae Tark builds images systematically using precise forms and colors of different weights which are placed together to create a perfect, yet precarious, balance. She uses rigid lines to playfully create three-dimensional effects on a flat surface. Soonae continues to exhibit her reductive, colorful geometric work in galleries, museums, and public spaces. Her list of awards includes a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, an Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Foundation Grant, a National Academy Museum Abbey Mural Painting Fund Fellowship, and an Individual Artist Initiative Award from the Queens Council on the Arts. She has her BFA from Dongduk Women’s University in Seoul, Korea and her MFA from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, France. Soonae lives and works in New York City.
