About the author: Lee Hwa-soo
She works as a painting artist and teaches children. She has a blunt hand called a "rag nail". Sometimes people who have these hands are going to have a lot of talent or an artist's hand, but now they are doing their favorite things with their hands. It is my dream to display with my mom who handed this hand to me someday.
I studied Korean painting at Chung Ang University and I am representing a modern person who expresses a confused self by dividing the image of a person into two. The expression system has been working on recognizing objects by drawing 'lines'. He was selected as the 2017 rising artist of Jeonju Cultural Foundation. He participated in 8 solo exhibitions at 'Jeonbuk Art Center' and 'Space Doyo', 'Drowning' 2 solo exhibition, Seogyo Art Experimental Center, Gallery Izu and KEON Art Center.
Work / Education
The expression is in the 'line' of Korean painting. Begin to recognize objects by drawing lines. Korean painting is based on oriental philosophy and is different from Western painting. The confused self that the work tries to deal with is derived from the oriental philosophical thought. The distinguishing power between Oriental painting and Western painting can be found in the line. It is important to say, 'To understand Oriental painting, you have to understand the line first'. Especially, in Korean painting, the line does not just mean the instrumental meaning of a specific object. The line of Korean painting is an insight to express the depth of things. Soon, I wanted to reveal the identity of the object through good. The identity of the object is made clearer by the overwriting of the original color of the object.
The image of this work represents the imagination of the person. But its expression was about "goodness." Depression and identity tries to try and differ a little in its essence. Scientists and scientists justify and explore the way images express and express confusion.
