Heeseop Yoon was born in Seoul, Korea and now lives in New York. She holds a MFA from City college of New York, and a BFA from Chung-ang University in Seoul, Korea. She also attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
Heeseop work deals with memory and perception within cluttered spaces. She begins by photographing interiors such as basements, workshops, and storage spaces,
places where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people. From these photographs she construct a view and then she draws freehand without erasing. As she correct "mistakes" the work results in double or multiple lines, which reflect how her perception has changed over time and makes her question her initial perception. Paradoxically, greater concentration and more lines make the drawn
objects less clear. The more she sees, the less she believe in the accuracy or reality of the images she draw.
