LIJUNG
 

 

My work is a loose process of self analysis that often ends comfortably in irresolution.
I extract meaning from journeys made and lessons discovered along my “nomadic” way. Rather than create art as social document, I embrace the inner monologue of personal experience through rendering primarily figurative forms.

My approach rests between delineation and freestyle abstraction. By allowing mediums to flow and remain “vital,” I describe recognizable human forms that evoke “primitive” or children’s art
This way, I’m free to explore the strengths of each mode of working.


I aspire to cultivate a confident spirit of freedom so I can discover invisible differences between my subjects and explore hidden qualities in common-place materials such as branches or construction plaster – a substance which I’ve combined with dark pigment to form imagery alternating between concrete line and a ghostly effect that, again, conjures an “in-between space” of form and emptiness with which I’m so fascinated.
