"I was born in Korea and spent most of my childhood in the middle of a forest. Most of the subject matters of the paintings I created were from those memories in the forest. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of the memories, but I wanted to express the impression of them. The visual images of memories in my head are vague and most of times hard to tell, but the feeling of it is the thing that lasts. If you look at my painting and feel something from it, that is what I tried to convey." - Joanne Nam

Akunyili Crosby was born in Nigeria, where she lived until the age of sixteen. In 1999 she moved to the United States, where she has remained since that time.
