    Detailed Description : Cho’s work synthesizes two contrasting forces. In his work, we discover a solitary woman portrayed on an iron plate. Despite the cold material property of iron, the woman gives off feelings of intimacy, sensuous and sensual love. The woman is a protagonist at the altar. The basis of Cho’s work is his consistent effort to balance Western physical experimentation with Oriental, elemental, and cosmic thoughts. Cho has been a disciple of Mircea Eliade, a philosopher of religion and anthropologist. Eliade referred to the mountain, a place where a harmonious encounter of earth (woman, mother) with heaven (god) is made as the “axis mundi,” or the world center. This mountain is the birthplace of shamanism, bridging earth and heaven. Shamanism can be defined as an earnest gesture to express modesty toward all things in the world.  Cho’s work can be interpreted as an expression of his own shamanism, an earnest gesture to express care for, and modesty toward the world.

    Detailed Description : Breaking away from three-dimensional sculpture for which she was mostly known, Kim started producing works with paper that can be seen as bas relief in 2009. The works became “bloom” series. For the series, the artist uses hanji which is traditional Korean paper hand-made with mulburry bark. Hanji is easy to press, stretch, or fold when it is still not completely dry, so it affords an artist great freedom in creating form. It is also very strong and absorptive. By a compressed air injector, Kim sprays colors on the paper sculpture she has created to complete her artwork. The image of the circle, the most complete of all forms, serves as the basic template of Kim’s “Bloom” series. Most of her works are of simple structures with gentle and elegant curves that are nearly circular, and multi-layered papers create delicate waves inside those circles. Numerous lines in parallel create gentle harmony with surrounding lines. Inside a circle is often found a condensational flow toward the center. It is much like a volcano erupting, sending lava shooting into the sky, or the coiling of a snail shell, or a leaf of a tree unfolding. Sometimes, it seems to be folding into the inside of the third dimension. Some works of the “Bloom” series are reminiscent of erotic flower and plant motifs created by Georgia O’Keeffe in her paintings and sculptures. Kim’s work has always been inspired by nature, and her “Bloom” series is a beautiful tribute to the nature’s creative energy. Kim describes flower as “a marvelous living thing that carries a new life as womb of a plant.” The goal of her work, according to the artist, is not just to represent beautiful figures of flowers, but to express wide, deep, and unlimited natural vitality in nature.

  • Lee, Junghee  (+)

    Biography : Junghee Lee studied and taught music. Since her retirement in 2000s, she has been pursuing a career as an artist, holding numerious exhibitions. It seems that her artistic sensibility and experience translate well into her visual creations, enriching her works with unique symphonic harmonies of colors and textures.

    Detailed Description : What is most intriguing about her painting is what is called 'knit collage'. Without almost no exception at all, one can find something of a 'net' in her works. Her paintings are strewn with all sorts of close lines within which clear and bright colors breath. In Lee's art making, painting is preceded by knitting which uses threads of various colors and textures. The knits she made give tactility to her picture planes.
