YoonJung Lee (S.Korea)

I constantly lived in cities and I was accustomed to hectic and fast-paced lifestyle of the metropolis. Which made my perspective limited by thinking that “this object came into my life”. This leads to a stagnating viewpoint, as if I’m imitating my own scene. In turn, the act of painting becomes like repeating the same […]

During my month long residency @ ComPeung, I investigated the hidden qualities of imprints. Derived from a natural source, I processed the imprint through various transformations into a skin-like texture. The texture together with its shape create an ambiguous notion of a living being. Evoking the presence of a fossilized organism, it intrigues, invites, and yet hides […]
