Suejin Jo, a Korean-born abstract painter based in New York, studied at Columbia University and the Art Students League. She has exhibited widely in and around New York and in Korea. She won McDowell competition and was a visiting artist in the Drew University New York Semester on Contemporary Art program. She served as a Board of Control member for the Art Students League for three years. Her work is in many private and public collections including JP Morgan Chase Bank; General Instrument Company; the Embassy of San Marino; Sogang University; and Korea Exchange Bank.
Suejin Jo paints in the tradition of Lyrical Abstract Expressionism in oil and acrylic on canvas. In November 2003 Helen Harrison of the New York Times reviewed her work in a show at the Parrish Art Museum: "Just plain good abstract painting is represented by SueJin Jo's two acrylic on canvas, which seem to have picked up one of the promising threads dropped by the second-generation Abstract Expressionism. Anyone with a taste for melting colors and graceful lines will not be disappointed by the liquid translucence of "Watering Sky" and "Comet". Both compositions are stabilized by schematic monoliths that play subtly against the sweeping linear arcs."
