(48 x 60". acrylic on canvas. 2020)
This is the very first painting of my new series. I want to bring more of my Korean heritage and the colors that provoke my own memories and experiences of my own culture.
I visualized this painting clearly from the very the beginning, but It took over 4 months for me to realize it, with so many changes and different states. I started in February and finished in October.
I’m working with lots of detail, with layer upon layer, and also creating areas of simplicty so the work has the characteristics of spontaneity and boldness.
I have also given myself the challenge of having this spontaneity but still having control by making decisions throughout the process.
