This painting, drawn with great touch, depicts time and space that keep slipping. I pick out words from my diary I write every day, and create a title for the work by matching the painting.

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.
