Rho Eunjoo Korean, b. 1988

Overview
Rho Eunjoo has captured the incomplete ambiguous state which could be seen as the time of amorphism on the canvas. She reaches the medium of painting through stages of drawing, modeling, and photography, and focuses on the transmission of senses that may occur as the properties of media and materials change in the process.

For Rho, objects and spaces are not objects to be specifically reproduced, but media that evoke thoughts and perspectives in abstract language in the process of newly recalling visual characteristics and recognizing them in a two-dimensional figure. As a result, the flowing and changing cognitive state is documented as the medium of the figure. The artist pays attention to the construction site that becomes the basis of the city and eventually disappears from the existing world as a middle ground. Through sensory decomposition across various fields, she explores the idea of shape and space through multiple sensory decussation and finds the principles of composition and composition. In the stage of 3D modeling objects to make miniature sculptures before drawing, Rho uses materials that are easy to handle and flexibly reshaped. Her ways of painting remind of the style of Western traditional paintings in that it converges into a point of view in which objects look at the model and draw pictures. Rho’s smooth and thin images, applies standard tactics that are faithful only to reproduction with the element of the matière unique to painting removed, producing intense and impossible landscape in the most neutral grey tones.

Rho Eunjoo lives and works in Seoul, Korea. She received a BFA from Hongik University in Korea and MFA at Korea National University of Arts in Korea. She has participated in numerous exhibitions on art institutions including Kumho Museum of Art (2021), Art Sonje Center (2021), Museum SAN (2019), NANJI Exhibition Hall (2017), Insa Art Space (2016), Space Wiling N Dealing (2019, 2013). She was selected as a resident artist of SeMA Nanji residency in Seoul and Kumho Young Artist in 2021. Her works are represented in the collections of Wumin Art Center in Korea.
