Myung Nam An’s career as an artist is just beginning, having graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2009 with a BA (hons) in ceramics. She has since become a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, Contemporary Applied Arts and has already exhibited widely both nationally and internationally.
In my work, I like to tell stories using symbols which are universal. As you look at one of my pieces, you could tell your own story and would interpret what you see in your own individual way. Each work in the series is created to evoke different moods and emotions.
By working with ceramics and using colour, it is my hope to marry the beautiful form with imagery that subtly informs or confronts the viewer to think about a larger issue – to ignite the thought provoking process. It is my goal to address people’s ideals and thoughts about what is beautiful and to try and encourage the viewer to investigate and hopefully question or think about issues that are taking place all around us.
