A series of exploratory drawings by artist Cory Feder. Raised between a mother from South Korea and a father from the Bronx, Feder’s work draws on personal storytelling and “the magic hidden in the mundane” to create a borderless dialogue with which to express her experience of existing between two worlds:
“I arrived in Korea with the intention of touching something- anything that could prove I belonged to my own roots. This particular sensation could only be extracted in moments of looking at the color of fruit stacked in buckets on the sidewalk or smelling the dark herbal bath in the mokyoktang when the sun was not out. Peeling off the skin of an over ripe persimmon and sitting with its subtle sweet taste is my thesis for this feeling. Everything I ever needed was always in plain sight, it turns out.”
