Seunghwui Koo sculpts her creations using the body of a human and the head of a pig. She was born in South Korea, where she first had the idea of combining the pig’s head and human body. The significance of the pig’s head is in the different symbolic meanings in the Eastern and Western cultures. Good fortune and greed, two very different connotations of the pig, are themes that are a part of her works. She has drawn upon her experiences from living in NY, NJ for eight years as the source of her subject matters. She uses resin, acrylic, and various other materials to create her works.
