Jiha Moon, Atlanta-based painter and printmaker, was formally trained in painting both in her native Korea and her adopted homeland of the United States, she has been a student of Eastern and Western artistic traditions alike. The experiences and memories of her two homes translate into her work’s varied geography, wildlife, flora and fauna, light and weather patterns. Into these she weaves references to the narratives of folklore and the spectacle of popular culture. From these myriad sources, Moon calls and reconstitutes her diverse artistic and cultural blend. Within a terrain of Eastern flatness and Western recession, the observed and the fantastical are seamlessly united.

Moon's work has been exhibited at numerous venues including: White Columns, New York, NY; the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA; Kunstoffice, Berlin, Germany; Kunsthalle M3, Berlin, Germany; Elizabeth Roberts Gallery, Washington, DC; Korean Cultural Service, Washington, DC, McLean Project for the Arts, McLean, VA; Arlington Arts Center, Arlington, VA; the University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City, IA; Eve Drewelowe Gallery, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA. the Brain Factory in Seoul, Korea, and the Hunt Gallery of Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia. She is the current grand-prize $ 10,000 winner of the prestigious Trawick Prize exhibition at the Creative Partners Gallery in Bethesda, MD.
