soon young KWON (권순영) Artist Biography

[Gallery Submission]


Artist Statement


My work springs from extremely personal experiences. Childhood events engrained in my memory come alive on the screen endlessly. Even though they were real life events, they are distorted in my memory, contorted, attached together and transformed into something else. Eventually, they head toward a certain direction which even I cannot fathom. I let myself be led by the flow. The images would escape from me and permeate deep into current affairs that I have been closely examining, mostly events that touch upon absurdity in our society. I have a genuine difficulty in trying to explain what my painting is about. Such feeling at a loss is not due to the inexplicability of the image, but due to my understanding that all the detail images I draw are linked to each other on multiple layers but to others, it will seem unlikely or ridiculous. However, such connection is all the more real to me in its existence.
