Yun Suk Nam (born 1937) is one of the artists who, in the eighties,
put feminist art into the mainstream. She came to art after raising a
family and fulfilling the traditional role of wife, mother, and daughter-
in-law. Most of her "mother figures" symbolize the role of Korean
women, which is characterized by the bondage of family and the
shackles of motherhood within a patriarchal society.
