Jay Chung is a Korean artist, based in Dallas, whose figurative paintings explore the complex interplay of physical realities and interior states of being. In his latest body of work, he takes as his subject the human figure, and eschewing conventional representation, seeks to present an “alternative” which expresses “our conscious and unconscious experience of being in the world.” What appears on the canvas is often a roiling blur of feeling-made-manifest—set on a ground or suspended in space—representing dreamlike states and the imagined contents of our “psychological, societal, and imaginative” lives.

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.
