Home / all artists / FINE ARTS / JI-NAH SOHN



Jinah Sohn, who spent almost two decades creating art with chair as a motif, boldly adopted a very different style with “lines and patterns”, turning around her identity of “chair artist”. She concentrates on the basic instinctive act of drawing and on painting as a tool of expression, and shows it meticulously and laboriously in her works. Her new works are filled with dots, lines, and planes, which are essential figurative elements, but as nature gets combine with these elements, Sohn creates sophisticated and gorgeous works that transform the landscape into lush nature peppered with deep urban sentiment. Sohn touches on the basic feature of painting from multiple angles to create uniqueness exclusively based on her own tastes and sensations. A world reimagined by herself, created by her own tastes and sensations, represents another brand unique to Jinah Sohn.
