About The Artwork

Inspired by ‘ Jaakko Kuusisto (Finnish Violinist and composer) Cello Concerto ‘ It served as a language that strangely interpreted sad feelings. Sublimely and calmly, it is time for me to stop and look back. In music, a concerto refers to a piece of music characterized by a confrontation and competition between two sound bodies, and its etymology comes from the Latin verb concerttare, which has the meaning of harmonious and ‘compete’. In fact, during the painting process, there was a constant, unique tension between the cello solo and other string instruments.

" Noble simplicity and Great silence imply history and existence. I'm constantly digging for that quiet place. " I was born in Seoul and have loved drawing since I was a child. I honed my skills in representation, perspective and depiction for a long time. I majored in Western painting at Sungshin Women's University in Korea and went to graduate school to specialize in painting. After studying Western painting techniques and artistic aesthetics at Sungshin Women's University, I seriously considered musical expression in painting during my MA course. I imitated the light of Post-Impressionism and gradually developed into abstract painting. I started looking into the techniques of Bonnard, Monet, Kandinsky, and Bartok (music) that expressed movement in light. So I went from impressions to improvisation and composition. and as a philosophical approach, I am working with a baroque exaggeration and continuity as well as an exploration of what human play is fundamentally. The context that crosses this expression from impression to abstraction is based on freedom and human will. I want to talk about human freedom with tension orchestrated around a few bold actions while being conscious of off-screen. The gesture of my brush in the painting is a part of my baroque taste, as if one day, I painted it as if I was longing for a dramatic connection between the past and the current event.
