is a South Korean painter. Combining detailed depictions of urban architecture with the fluid brushstrokes of traditional Korean art, Jieun Park’s works try to capture the emotions of excitement and loneliness which being in a city evokes for her: “What I try to express through my works are the emotions that I felt at the specific moments during the journey. I remember how I was emotionally overwhelmed and felt lonely by looking down at the city from on high.” Her personal feelings are described as under-painted ink marks which are instinctively spreaded and dropped on the surface. As she creates relatively realistic images of the city within the abstract ink marks, she challenges to record ourselves in this fast changing city and its double sidedness where colorful impression coexists with loneliness. The work is at once Modern and decorative. The loops and drips of paint are very organic and combine with the detailed rendering of man-made spaces to form a visual paradox.
