Jeanie Choi is an artist from Guadalajara, Mexico. Her work documents her own and others’ desires to reveal the unsaid using gestures and performances: sharing with the viewer what is private to the confessor, straddling the line between revelation and concealment. Subjects that deal with blurred truths in sexuality, recollection, and identity are persistent in her work, which has shown in galleries nationally and abroad and has been published in Capricious Magazine, Musée Magazine, American Photo Magazine, among others. She received her BFA in Photography from Parsons School of Design in New York, NY in 2012. Choi is currently based in Seattle, WA.
