About The Artwork

Most of the Isolation is caused by unwanted coercion. The separation anxiety that I had to live apart from my family when I was a child limited my life to unhealed trauma. The trauma to the sense of isolation later became a subject of exploration that should be transcended, giving me the freedom to dream(imagine) about other dimensions. As an artist through isolation, I can fully immerse myself in the depth between the unconscious and consciousness and without any other external interference. In this process, an ambiguous surrealistic world between memory and reality is expressed. Through this, I would say that my work is an isolated and erupting space. Surrealistic transformation of the surrounding world, complete dislocation or division of characters, emotions, and combinations in the perspective of new harmony are the subject of my intended inquiry and curiosity and are an experiment on the original value of the painting in which matter is imaged. It is also a place to confirm the essential meanings of Modern art.

Selected Saatchi Rasing Star 2021 My primary interest is the potentiality of objects— and the physical or psychological state changes that take place inside and around us at any given moment. ​ My recent work focuses on a challenge to create figurative paintings which defy a conventional representation of the body and present an alternative that is much more about our conscious and unconscious experience of being in the world. This embodiment references the relationship between our own physicality and our cerebral, societal and imaginative life, foregrounding altered states such as dreaming. It’s very important to me to contrast this intangible scenario with our inevitable, visceral experience of the world. My compositions focus on the human form, often unrecognizable as if affected by the skewed and invisible forces of contemporary physics, revealing the lack of certainty in what we perceive as conventionally reliable spaces and interrelations of objects. The body-subject is therefore present in my works in parallel with a quest to see the space of nothing. ​ I was born in 1986 and grew up in Seoul, Korea. After receiving my BA in Architect Engineering and working several years at an architecture & design firm as an advisor, I came to Boston, BFA to pursue my dream as a visual artist. I received my BFA & BA Psychology degree from Tufts University & School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) in 2016.
