    Detailed Description : Taking inspiration from the moon jars of the Joseon Dynasty, Choi Youngwook expresses the memory and story of our unadorned life in his unique calm and soft manner. By exploring a moon jar’s simplistic yet infinitely malleable quality, Choi aims tofind harmony between the past and the present, and the others and “I.” Choi begins byusing a fine brush to sketch the three-dimensional moon jar onto a two-dimensional canvas. He then undergoes a laborious process of applying a special mixture of paint, stone powder and gesso over and over again until the painting is rendered into the likes of a brightly shining moon. The surface of the jar is completed with engraving marks, stains, and other irregularities which can be seen as the traces of time. The crackled seams of the jar’s surface converge and diverge as though speaking of the vagaries, the joys, and the sorrows of life. Youngwook Choi completed his Undergraduate and Masters degree in fine arts at Hong-Ik University. He has had over 20 solo exhibitions abroad and in South Korea, and has been invited to numerous group exhibitions and international art fairs. A few years ago, his work was added to the acclaimed collection of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation putting spotlight on his works. Carrying both a Korean and Western style, his work was featuredon the album cover for South Korean sopranoSumi Jo. His works are also part of other international collections such as the Spanish Monarchy, Luxembourg Monarchy, the Philadelphia Museum and many more.

    Detailed Description : ■ Description Jeje unravels serious questions about our existence with humor and wit. Similar to writing a diary, the artist portrays his feelings through drawings and words on the sculpture. While his work reveals the importance of one’s emotions, it also expresses the contradictions and cynical happiness of individuals in modern society. The various colors shown in his work demonstrate these myriad emotions. While the artist satirizes the individual who is slaughtered in the mechanical device system created by society, he does not directly convey these doctrine messages. Instead of simply criticizing modern life, he expresses confusion as an individual being. Through his work, he questions the continuous and fluid value system in our society. His works are thus closely related to our lives and lead to communication and understanding with the public.

    Detailed Description : A tree of life that has emerged in the world again is a gate that connects the visible and invisible worlds or the chasm between them. Light stands for the communion between the visible and invisible worlds. The tree of life symbolizes the interaction between these two different worlds as it is. Our industrialized contemporary society is laden with various stimulations that make us oblivious of life’s fundamental source. I wanted to create a site where the vitality of nature and the substantial world embedded in us meet. Beyond a mere Jeonglok Lee communication with nature, I hope we will be reminded of the waves from the invisible world that have been always influencing our life and history. Butterflies represent the soul in the East. Butterflies fly between here and there, even crossing the border between life and death. Coincidentally, the Korean word for butterfly, nabi, also means “prophet” in Hebrew. Because of this, the light in various forms and symbols is concentrated as butterfly in this series. The “Instant Flash” that Jeonglok used for my work is an instant light. It certainly does exist but is an energy that cannot be captured. It is the most essential tool and also the most significant symbol in my photography. We now have something invisible that does exist and the positive energy that was transmitted by it. The light as a medium of such energy can only be manifested through light and darkness, gentle and tough, and harmony and balance.

    Detailed Description : The scenes Dukki Kim depicts are fantastic and fairytale-like, but the landscapes of colors stem from the heart of one who has experienced change in nature and encapsulated this in his eyes and mind. Although Kim portrays restricted objects made up of his own specific motifs, he tries to present dreamy images intact, conveying the beauty of ever-changing colors in nature. Constantly marked by his main use of dots and patterns, in a sense, his paintings are completed through impromptu brushwork. What stands out the most in his works is the presence of rapid brushstrokes amid images such as flowers, leaves, and stems. This aspect is reminiscent of an expressionist style. A shift in his manner from applying dots one-by-one to taking the lead in rendering a scene with audacious touches refers to his more aggressive exploration of pictorial strata. ”Who can dare deny the saying that “the most beautiful word in the world is ‘love’ while the most precious one is ‘family’”? The artist probably felt that all the landscapes he viewed were beautiful because he was there with his family. His works seem to say that we can feel more pleasure when sharing things with others. Only with this can we figure out where the “codes of happiness” he enjoys have been derived from.

    Detailed Description : The pine trees were seemed to be like people who were forced to leave their own land and compelled to be moved from place to somewhere in the process of industrialization. It is just like people's self-portrait in modern society. The beauty of the garden trees is just total of their agony and efforts to survive in a strange place. How many trees might survive or not? Can we say the trees are beautiful? How many people who wander on the outskirts of cities strive to settle down? I hope to hear their whisper and hope to soothe and glorify their agony. It is a kind of an anthem for those outsiders who are abandoned by the process of industrialization.
