Inspired by the morning sun, the evening moon, and the forested mountains, my journey of painting Chaekgado in harmony with nature is not yet finished.
In the modern world where the gender boundary becomes increasingly insignificant, I would like to express the double faces and contradictions of human beings through women craving for love. These expressions imply new interpretations of such familiar feelings.
