About The Artwork

"How come you draw balloons?" sometimes I get questioned. In answer to the inquiry, I take a Latin expression ‘carpe diem’ and ‘memento mori’. Carpe diem is usually translated "seize the day." Living in the moment is a resistance to mortality. By enjoying the present as though you take part in a festival, you become hardly conscious of time as if you were in timeless eternity. No one, however, can remain exempt from being mortal. Memento mori meaning "remember that you have to die" reminds you of transience nature of carpe diem. Balloons are everywhere at festivals. They elevate the spirit of the crowd but are doomed to be disposed. That's why a balloon is a proper metaphor for life that repeats its cycle of tension and relaxation. Fully inflated balloons unveil the balance between pursuit of desire and restraint. Colorful balloons represent various lives, and balloons making repeat patterns stand for lives all of a sort.(by Jinho Kee) "Balloons" by Jinho, Kee, done on oil on canvas seems to be a photograph at first glance. However, upon a closer look, the qualities of the balloons are skillfully captured through the subtlety of the brushstroke and the reflection of light on the surface of the balloons. The vibrancy of colours brings a smile across to the viewers and inspires them to start a new adventure today. (by Art Flatform) Artist Jin-Ho,Kee has achieved unique position on motif through researching deeply on the formative of balloon. Identical size of balloons in vivid and bright color are arranged densely with repeatitive rhythms and cadence of monotone.This painting is located between Hyperrealism and Realism. Anonymous approach like Minimalism on formative shows kind of indirect gesture on painting refraining from excessive expression of emotion. To research on balloon consistently as series contributes to include rich art historical value in this artwork. (by Jung-Hwi,Kim )
