Hyunsun Jeon

The world around us appears differently depending on the perspective and point of view. Hyunsun Jeon have been observing the subject which is unfixed and constantly changing. Since the information gained from the observation is partial and fragmentary, however, Jeon continually tries to reach the real appearance of the object by filling the gap between unclear details with curiosity and imagination. Nevertheless, the judgment on the subject is deferred and only vague speculation is predominant due to its uncertainty. Hyunsun chooses painting as a medium for documenting imprecise status frankly and put repeated questions on the canvas with multi-level and multi-faceted expressions.
