Jeong Jiyoon

Korean, b.1994


The artist captures the sensory characteristics that are usually shown in the collected photographic images and transfers them to the canvas with oil paints. These quick strokes create a sense of rhythm and allow for immediate expression. While looking at photos taken on a smartphone one day, the artist discovers a situation that she did not know at the time. The photograph, unlike what she felt at the time, came raw. The memories of the senses felt in the actual experience were not contained in the photograph. In other words, the senses we saw and felt were not fully contained in a single picture. In the past, photographs were printed and kept in albums, as if they were written, and now photos of smartphone camera albums immediately capture the situation and emotions of that time, but soon volatilize. As a result, experience and sensations are more important than photographic images in the process of transferring from the artist's experienced image to canvas.
