LEESANG ART SPACE is holding Soonj’s private exhibition “Life Is An Art” from Wednesday, February 7, 2018, to Monday, February 26, 2018.
The exhibition will feature installation works that attach meaning to the value of ordinary daily life and paintings drawn on a flat surface. Life is ART wants to provide a place to appreciate that happiness comes from daily life, not something special and that all life can be a part of art.
In this exhibition, a total of six works will be introduced with paintings that will draw attention for their various colors ranging from high-profile to low-profile and her unique brushstrokes, and installation works which will cover the exhibition space with mixed media.
Soonji's works were introduced and expressed in the painting with her own meaning in everyday life, where various emotions such as the past and present, life and death, and the cycle of four seasons coexist together through the rhythm of nature and repeated and changing patterns. Painting people's relaxed lines and ordinary everyday life, she feels that romance and art exist in mundane everyday life which is often considered boring and ordinary.
Although the reality seen close by could be a tragedy it can be a comedy from a distance, and it is a process of work that many people can sympathize with, reminding the natural sense of life that daily life that has not felt special can be a memory that evokes longing emotions when looking back over the years. The artist quickly edits the happy memories of the past into pictures. She also paints his own stories and emotions from seeing and feeling people.
