Oh Sekyung

Oh Sekyung directs metaphors of the ironic moments of everyday life, social problems, and the absurdity of events into dramatic situations. This is done effectively through the use of distinctive pictorial devices such as fire, light and smoke. Having employed a high school girl as a model for a long time, he reproduces the bizarre sense of the daily life we experience through a strange combination involving amusement parks, alleys, and beaches.  Anxiety, fear, and certain absurd situations are repeated. High school girls experience difficult reality, going beyond our general perception. Some characters are in groups, others appear alone. Perhaps they got lost in an unfamiliar city. The people in the artist's paintings are high school girls which also at the same time metaphorize an average woman or human beings in search for their own identity. The direction of strange spaces and environments that resemble the artist's reality but are never the same creates a unique worldview. In the artist's work, the socialization process of the adolescent is expressed as an experience of wandering around a world of horror and mystery.
