Choi was born and raised in South Korea and is a resident artist at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her work transforms objects, figures and spaces into visual language by repeatedly layering flat and spatial surfaces. Viewers empathetically encounter the emotions of the human forms created, as Choi expresses the ambiguity of emotion through flat and spatial surfaces; subtle facial expression, gaze and body gesture; as well as color and brush expressions. Building the surfaces with clay allows her to seamlessly weave between dimensions and textures to articulate feelings of ambivalence.
