I love the moment just before sunrise and right after sunset. The tranquility of that moment lets you see the real universe. It is a moment in which there is only the space surrounding me and me, without the contrast of light and darkness.

Jeon Heekyoung’s bold abstract canvases investigate the concept of utopia, through its notions of idealism and escapism - and its ultimate unattainability. Furthermore, they seek to highlight both the tension and harmony between Heekyoung’s internal and external states of being. Stylistically, Heekyoung uses the intense natural beauty of traditional Korean landscapes as a foundation for exploring her own notion of utopian paradise. Vast, gestural brushstrokes break out into the foreground, coming to signify the tip of a mountain, the curve of a stream - all working together to bring the unattainable within reach. She is a solidly established artist with works in numerous museum collections and has a strong proven track record.
