About The Artwork

< Urban Landscape Project > People today are living in a hurry and living a hard life in affluent urban life. Behind the active and positive aspects of a modern, very sophisticated city life lies a very dark, lonely and gloomy aspect of life. The number of people eating alone or drinking alone are growing in Korea nowadays. It is because the number of people living alone are growing. I want to give a small flowerpot as a gift to the people living alone in the lonely city. Life in the city would be less lonely if we could be with a flowerpot as of a vending machine which is common. I grew up in the city. I studied horticulture, graphic design and Fine art. And that made me interested in how much joy plants could give to people. Any plants in the world make people calm.The plants give a bright side to themselves and others. I realize how important plants are as a city girl. I hope you can enjoy your day with the help of my work. I intend to provide comfortable rest for the modern people tired in the daily life of the city, and to provide the function of the plants that can bring about the purification of the mind through the work. And it will be a more meaningful and rewarding task for me who studied horticulture, interior view and space design. The work is done through drawing each plant in detail with acrylic paint and oil color. Man creates space, and everyone has a comfortable safe haven that only he feels. Our predisposition to prefer nature and to long for nature is another way out of all the modern people living in the city.

I was born April 21, 1972 in Seoul, Korea, and grew up in Seoul, Korea till I went to Japan after marrying. I graduated from Dept. of Horticulture, College of Natural Sciences, Seoul Women’s University, studied Visual Design at Seoul National University of Science and Technology and Japan, graduated from Dept. of Painting, Seoul Digital University (BFA), and graduated from Dept. of Painting, College of Fine Arts, Hongik University (MFA). I held 22 private exhibitions starting from 2010, participated in more than 220 special exhibitions and group exhibitions and had multiple awards. Currently, I am working actively as director at the Exhibition Planning and Policy Department, Korean Association of Art and member and full-time artist in Korean Association of Christian Artists, Seongnam Association of Art, Writers Association of Bundang, Asia Association of Artists, Art Metro, and Line&Color. My work aims an artist's own story which is quite personal and descriptive. Small but touching experience felt in everyday life through 「The work looking into myself」. Childhood memories and inner story. This is not just an artist's own story but a self-portrait of everyone living today which is rapidly changing. Recently through ‘Urban Landscape Project’, I am not just representing loneliness and mind of people today by a foliage plant’s indoor purification and primarily function to watch leaves in indoor space of the dreary city, but working on focusing on how the space changes when the plants are laid in indoor and outer space.
