Hoh Woo Jung Korea, b. 1987

Overview

Hoh Woo Jung has represented a balance precariously maintained by accordance of multiple geometric shapes and objects, by capturing discrepancy between heterogeneity and everydayness involved in philosophical and ambiguous sentences composed of abstract words. For his 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. Recently, Hoh focuses on the work of capturing patterns with a background of various colors. By embedding lines that appear to be part of the pattern in canvas as a limited space, He lets the viewers imagine infinity outside the canvas and explore the relationship between an individual and a whole.

Hoh Woo Jung has participated in exhibitions at Kumho Museum of Art, SongEun Art Cube, Nam-Seoul Museum of Art, and Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art (GMoMA) in Korea. His work is represented in the collections of Seoul Museum of Art, Daejeon Museum of Art and GMoMA in Korea.
