YVONNE BOAG is a Scottish-born Australian painter and printmaker whose work reflects the many places where she has lived and worked. Having spent the last 20 years dividing her time between South Korea and Australia, YVONNE BOAG’s art responds to these surroundings through her use of bold colours and forms.
YVONNE BOAG was the first Asialink artist-in-residence in South Korea in 1993 and since then has been travelling there regularly creating ties with many South Korean artists and teaching at several of the universities. She has a studio there and the time she spends in South Korea greatly influences her work. A feeling of displacement opens BOAG’s works up to greater cultural influences. They are fresh and immediate; not stagnant in visual language and impressions of subject matter.
