  • Name of Entrant:KWON Hyejeong
  • Title of Work:Never Ending Story
  • Nationality:Republic of Korea
  • Artist Statement:
    My work gets a spiritual pleasant sensation by radiating the different kinds of feelings that occur during the process of living at present and desires spurted from the unconsciousness as images. Such series of working action can be a way of managing myself and a process of finding the true self by getting out of the distracting thoughts and fixed ideas that appeared from social action effects by expressing the oppressed emotions extemporarily.

    The characteristics shown on works as the expression of emotion are extremely private and show the autobiographic state by approaching the inner language in metaphorical situation. This is how I communicate with the world through the works by unfolding and showing the residual products of the emotions obtained from my private life. Thus I express myself through the human figures, animals and other images in my drawings, and express thoughts that are inherent in the consciousness of me. They represent common emotions such as fears, depression, happiness and sadness, as well as others that are experienced in the present society. Eventually these images, reflecting one’s major problems in life, slowly seep into the depths of mind.
