Youngsoon Jin

Born and raised in Aichi, Japan, Australian artist Youngsoon Jin received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture, at the Aichi University of the Arts in 2007 and moved to Australia the same year. Youngsoon uses drawing and installation to reveal fleeting moments of beauty in ordinary objects . Her recent work comments on consumption and food production. In 2016 she was a finalist in the Fleurieu Food + Wine Art Prize and in 2015 won the Emma Hack Art Prize for the work 'Omelette', featuring the two halves of a spent eggshell nested together. Her work 'Enoki' (a sensitively executed close up drawing of an enoki mushroom) won the prize for works on paper in the 2013 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, and in 2011 she was a finalist for The 7th Prospect Portrait Prize. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions including Connect (2014), The ERA We Live in (2013-2014) and Reason for being (2012) at Prospect Gallery South Australia.
