Min Sun

Min Sun projects her emotions and meaning of existence on mountains, rivers and reservoirs. She tries to metaphorize the meaning of her life through objects covered with cloth. The reproduction of visual experience gradually creates a contact with the artist's own inner flow of consciousness and movement of thought. It is deeply immersed in thoughts with contemplativeness. No artist neglects the importance of reflectively thinking on and building insight into one's own existence. She insists on the path of an artist in her own way. Min Sun has also made paintings with a lonely and somewhat gloomy atmosphere for a long time. An isolated individual doing one's best to lead a life is expressed in a gloomy and lonely landscape. We all barely exist. And we manage to meet each other and try to empathize. It is a great virtue to tenaciously lead a life despite all the weaknesses and precariousness. The artist bestows upon the painting a significance that goes beyond just a tool of expression and representation. The artist thinks through a handful of soil how we will continue our existence as mortal beings in a reality full of coincidences and accidents.

Min Sun (b.1977)
