Sen Chung

Born in Jeonju/ Korea 1963. In his painting, expresses the balance between emotional and rational by invisible forces. Through the geometric, abstract elements that quietly float within the square frames of a canvas, the artist emphasizes the indirectness of expression and ambiguity. With a sense of mystery, he is trying to push the boundaries of painting and besides aiming to create something that has a timeless quality and at the same time that makes a picture special.
