Han Jihyoung

Han Jihyoung's work expresses the surface and movement of various materials with atypical organic images. What would the future look like? The artist imagines a state where everything is reset, like the moment when new sensations and movements are about to unfold after a complete dissolution of the existing civilization. Images are products of imagination that do not currently exist as the objects, events, and stories are absent and are free from meaning or interpretation. As if experiencing unfamiliar sounds and events, new experiences are converted into visual images. Her paintings characterize the fantasy of mankind with dreamy colors and compositions like ones generated by computer graphics. They feature senses and images, emotional experiences and moods that take place before verbalization. Through the keyword 'transformation body', the artist imagines a mankind completely transformed by the evolution in molecular biology, information network, nanotechnology, cutting-edge information network, and capitalism.
