Naomi Kuo lives and works in Queens, NY. She utilizes drawing, painting, collage, quilting, and various collaborative modes to make connections between societal systems, material culture and individual experience. Her practice includes exploring neighborhood identity formation in Asian American communities. Studying the vegetable gardens of Asian immigrants in Flushing has led her to an interest in growing things during the pandemic, which has led to more plant drawings. Naomi’s work has been presented as part of exhibitions and programs at the Queens Museum, the Queens Public Library, Korea Art Forum, The Local Project, and more. She received her MFA in Studio Art / Social Practice from Queens College.
