Hoh Woo Jung Korea, b. 1987

Overview

Hoh Woo Jung has represented a balance precariously accomplished by accordance of multiple geometric shapes and objects, by capturing discrepancy between heterogeneity and everyday-ness involved in philosophical and ambiguous sentences composed of abstract words. His images including cohabitation of instability and tension, and of imbalance and equilibrium, are a device delivering anxiety, hollowness, desolation contemporary people frequently come across in a form of painting. For his recent works, Hoh builds configuration by adopting only lines and curves instead of detailed shapes of objects; unexpectedly, his extreme simplicity increases concentration and effectively highlights dynamics of the objects. He first sketches objects with a pencil on a black background then covers the background with white paint. Sometimes parts of the pencil sketch are naturally covered in white, erasing the original form of the objects he drew.
