[ Artist Note ]

Beginning in 2016, I started to paint the series of landscape scenes, < Vacant House >, with a subject of the redevelopment area. The space that is designated as an outdated and will be destroyed is the place where somebody's past has been accumulated. I have felt the sense of crisis of losing all the memories of the space, not just losing the space itself, while observing the redevelopment area that has become impossible to return to. Past is the beginning of the present and the center of the present. As an extension of this meaning, I set this disappearing space as ' home ' and defined those who lost the place to return to as ‘ homeless. ’ I want to express the feelings of those who lost and missing ‘ home ’ on my precise drawing work. At the same time, I plan to study my deep attachment to space and hometown.

The ' Returning Home ' series based on the ' Returning Home ' of the Chosun Dynasty begins with a desire to leave somewhere. Like the journey of Do Yeon-myung who went looking for the Utopia,I put together images so that I could see them at a glance.

As I moved to Bukseong-ro, Daegu, I experienced the change caused by urban development. Then I began to record the night time of the surrounding spaces during the year. The landscape of this time is the coming past of new thing, it is because the morning always begins at night.
