Asia Society Texas Center welcomes artist Aimee Lee to discuss her work as part of The Magic of Korean Papermaking workshop at the Glassell School of Art. This presentation will use still and moving images to describe how hanji—Korean paper—is made in both Korea and the U.S. It will also provide insight into how contemporary artists are using hanji for books, sculpture, jewelry, and artwork. Different uses of hanji across daily life and special occasions will follow a brief overview of key points in hanji's history. Samples of hanji and artwork made from it will accompany the talk.

Eric Santoscoy-Mckillip was born in El Paso, Texas in 1989. He received his BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011, a Master of Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2015 and an MFA from the New York University in 2017. Moving between painting and sculpture, Eric’s work is an examination of place, identity, and memory through the use of color, symbols, and textures by reclaiming what has already been reclaimed. The transitions between these elements shift, overlap and blur to reflect the in-between space of the borderland, continually changing histories and identities of the geographic region and himself.
