This week, for the nineteenth episode in Propeller’s PODCAST series:  BEYOND THE FRAME, we hear from Heejae Jo.

Episode #19 Heejae Jo

In this episode, we talk with Surrealist and Automatiste painter Heejae Jo.  Influenced by Duchamp and Matisse, her vibrantly coloured, multi media assemblages, reference her dreams through intuitive markmaking, which is free from tradition and joyfully subversive.  

Heejae was born in South Korea and immigrated to Canada. She likes to experiment with what we believe is normal—tradition, universal value, and rational ways of thinking. 

I have so many thoughts in my head and I have to express them in some way and art is one of the ways I have chosen and enjoyed so far…”
