Paige Jiyoung Moon’s paintings are like a wide angle projection of memory, key moments retrieved and recorded from strange angles and in minute detail. She says her interest in painting from memory derives from “wanting to remember what makes [her] happy”. The obsessive amounts of detail – showing every object atop a coffee shop counter, in the back of a van, at a laundromat or on the beach, as well as all the people, known and unknown, shows an impressive commitment to documenting life.
We first wrote about Paige’s work back in 2014, since then she has continued to hone her style, while broadening her subject as life shifts and develops, encompassing new people, locations and experiences. Going from paintings of home, school and local Seoul cafes, to hikes in Yosemite, road trips and California life.
