Jeong Yun-kyung

Jeong Yun-kyung, after graduating from Ewha Womans University in 2006, went to London and finished her degree at Slade School of Fine Art in 2008. Jeong has worked as a professional artist in the UK since, which makes this solo exhibition at Gallery Koo her first exhibition in Korea since she moved to England. Studying in England has brought not only a geomorphological change but dispositional changes in her abstract expression and details. Back in Ewha Womans University, even though her work was based on Western painting, she had a deep interest in Oriental painting as well, which has led the artist’s abstract paintings to display the loftiness of Orientalism, a traditional feature that art should exist in nature, and scenes where various experiences cross one another based on linear aspects.
