Curator's Eye

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.

With the imagination of walking under a waterfall in the mountains, the painting is completed through the process of crossing the landscape in the painting and the space of reality. This tranquil and comfortable universe is my spiritual source.
