Youngsoon Jin Exhibition

Youngsoon Jin's exhibition presented a series of aesthetic food drawings in light and shade that reveal the beauty in the ordinary and familiar. Jin explores the idea of food as something not just for consumption. Reflecting her cultural background and Japan’s obsession with the aesthetic qualities of food, her work explores her past and the deep traditions of her culture. Jin currently lives and works in Adelaide. She has won a number of prizes including the Emma Hack Art Prize (2015) for her drawing, Omelette, works on paper Prize for her drawing, Enoki in The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize (2013) and The 7th Prospect Portrait Prize (2011)
