SOOJEONG CHOI

ABOUT ARTIST CHOI SOO JEONG Marc Chagall said “Great art picks up where nature ends.” Soo Jeong Choi create her work by taking photos of real-life nature, a space familiar to us, then recombine and reconstruct them, to create a 3rd space that lives and breathes a new and different life. This recreated space may look like a familiar landscape at first sight, but on closer look, it is nature in completely different form that one has never encountered before. This is the focus of Choi’s work, expressing the energy within a recreated invisible space. She uses digital photo collage to recreate a fictitious landscape complete with mountains at its autumn best, the trees that have silently grown their roots in it, waterfalls full of...

JIYEON SONG

ABOUT ARTIST SONG JIYEON My paintings began from finding my own self. Because I was aware of the incompleteness of the existence of the so-called 'self', I chose the external environment surrounding me as the object which could speak on behalf of myself. I am keeping my eyes on the surrounding environment that always change and develop, not fixed consistently. Having grown in the city, since childhood up to now, although it is a space that is friendly and comfortable more than any other landscape, I don't look at the city in a positive nor negative way. To me, city is the way it is. It is because city is a place which coexisted with myself the moment I had existed. City enables me to possess...

YOUNGROK SUNG

ABOUT ARTIST SUNG YOUNG ROK When asked what makes him draw plum blossoms, Young Rok Sung replies “its mesmerizing fragrance.” He says it was so overwhelming and intoxicating when he first smelled it, that he now travels around Korea visiting them during their full blossom each year. Young Rok’s paintings at first draw the viewers’ attention with its splendor colors, but it also has a subtle touch of sadness in its look. Plum blossoms have short life span, coming and going in less than 3 weeks. During those three short weeks, it shows its heartbreaking beauty… but after that it soon becomes one’s yearning and longing. Or perhaps it’s the distance between the plum blossom and the distant mountains, the artist and the ideal world,...

JIHYE PARK

ABOUT ARTIST PARK JIHYE In her paintings, a woman always takes the central position. When a figure appears, we are likely to look through the face first. But for the artist always show the women from the back, that typical seeing process is to be frustrated. It is at the very moment that the minute and delicate details which attracted the artist's eyes such as the shapes of the muscles and bones in the subtle movement of the bodies, and the floral patterns or lace patterns on the clothes catch our eyes and become the real central motives of the paintings. The reason the artist always draws women from the back might be that she is much more impressed by the bodies, by the countenances...

BYUNGJOO KIM

ABOUT ARTIST KIM BYUNG JOO Byung Joo Kim's works started from his visual curiosity about the boundaries of space. His famous relief works, Ambiguous Wall, breaks down buildings by eliminating 'surfaces' and leaving only lines and dots. Resulting spaces, which has been made unclear of what's 'inside' and what's 'outside' by these 'ambiguous walls', now clash and overlap each other opening up a new space more subjective to new interpretations and possibilities. Ambiguous Wall induces the audiences to activate a high level of spatial perception awareness. It is a visualization of invisible space, a multilayered and multidimensional structure of endless intersections of horizontal and vertical lines which gradually come closer and eventually overlap each other by perspective system.  The work is created of delicate steel,...
