Art Description

Painting: Gouache, Watercolor on Canvas.

I participated in residency programs in the United States and Japan in the winter and summer of 2017.

The place called city is where most modern people living in this age run their lives. Like many milestones and signs in cities, cities are places where different values and desires are in conflict. The nature of the jungle, like the maze, which is so dense that you can not know what the danger is, resembles the city of modern society. Can people be confident that their desire is really desire in the race of desires that are happening in a city like a huge jungle? Images in the work Dodo birds seen here and there are individuals who are wandering in modern society like this jungle.

The two residency experiences gave me a different view of the city called "Seoul", the place where I living. The scenery of Seoul, which was felt unfamiliar, seemed to be a mixture of tradition and modernity. To do this, I started to revisit Seoul that I was already familiar with.
