Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, chinese ink and korean paper on Paper.

I love to travel. Traveling to me, is an act that simultaneously brings different emotions such as excitement and loneliness. My works show images of the places where I actually visited, so that I am allowed to express various emotions and the moments that I physically experienced through the journey.
The cityscapes in my works feel very dull, yet there is something that shines through.
There are no signs of people living in the beautiful cities in my works. Although the city is packed with so many different kinds of buildings, it arouses a feeling of loneliness when I look at the complex city
The city is changing very fast while we are living our busy lives. The dull feeling of the buildings in my works portraits the people in hectic daily life where only meaningless everyday conversation exists.
What I try to express through my works are the emotions that I felt at the specific moments during the journey. I remember how I was emotionally overwhelmed and felt lonely by looking down at the city from on high.
My personal feelings are described as under-painted ink marks which are instinctively spreaded and dropped on the surface. As I create relatively realistic images of the city within the abstract ink marks, I try to record ourselves in this fast changing city and its double sidedness where colorful impression coexists with loneliness.
