VIEW IN MY ROOM
As a teenager, I spent more time looking in the mirror to stick a double eyelid tape to my eyes, than reading books in class. I was the only one in my family who was very sensitive to visual things and the beauty. Envying my beautiful-looking friends around me, I used to belittle myself, thinking I had an un-pretty face, a flat nose and head, and a small eyes and eyelids. I was obsessed with beauty, and it was a great comfort for me, such a visually sensitive girl, to draw something beautiful. The Yeo-ja[woman] series is a process of insight into my desire toward beauty and vanity. I create mixed media art pieces inspired by portraits of traditional Korean beauty. In ancient Joseon, ‘Gache’ was used as an added embellishment on the hairs of women that signified the predilection of beauty. The value of it was far exceeding than the exchange of all of one’s wealth. Pursuing beauty beyond all consequences, mankind’s endless desire may look different throughout ages, but the underlying premise is the same. I reflect my desire to the hair, the Gache, expressing it more colorful and exaggerated, and the hair part takes me to a more imaginary world.

I create painting and mixed media art pieces inspired by my daily life struggling to survive in this beautiful and evil world. A variety of materials like resin, foam, and ceramic are usually added on the painted canvas or panel to highlight the theme. When indefinable images in my mind, which might be written on lots of paper or even cannot be explained, are created with just a piece of art, I get tons of fun, joy, and pleasure. With an experience of art therapist, I have a strong belief in the healing power of art, visual and spiritual impact of it.
