So Yoon Lym is a Korean New Jersey-based artist who has spent parts of her life also in Kenya, Uganda and France and who works in different mediums. In this post, we want to introduce her ongoing series of realistic acrylic on paper paintings of hair and braid patterns, titled “The Dreamtime“. She started the series in the summer of 2008 and the paintings are based on photos she has taken of students and strangers she came across in Paterson, New Jersey where she has been working for the past 9 years.
I’m Tabasco, a seven year’s young male basset hound. I was rescued from the streets in Long Beach right after the 4th of July…one of the scariest times of the year. The shelter was so full with Independence Day refugees that I was given a firm ultimatum: have a volunteer from BHRSC pick me up right away or else. Fortunately, BHRSC came through and so I never had to learn what the “or else” was.
