Jeong Min Moon studied a Western painting in BA, Seoul, South Korea in 1990 and she gained a MFA Fine art at Middlesex University, London, UK 2004.  Her work based on Western Action painting and Korean naturalism which promotes simplicity and nature. As an artist from a different culture herself, the roughness action of ripping, dripping, sticking reflects the fear people experience when they first encounter the new ideas and concepts of another culture. The key aspect of her work is to explore the relationship between mixed culture and the inspirations of her inner nature.
