Holy Battle

Curator's Eye

The rich, otherworldly universes created by Jinu Nam are an aesthetic feast for the eyes. Despite creating a celestial aura through his use of hierarchical composition and opulent splendour, Nam subverts these connotations of classical religious iconography by placing childlike cartoon figures and metamorphosed creatures at the centre of his work. Acting as a reflection on modern-day society, Nam’s canvases act as a stage on which tragicomic tales of resistance, forgiveness and personal conflicts are told. This is an artist who has a strong, coherent internal world and this is reflected with growing recognition from museums.
