Biography

Color is the primary focus and fundamental element of Won Kun Jun’s paintings, which explore color relationships and abstract fields of monochrome. Won layers 20-30 thin coats of watered-down paint—shades of red, yellow, blue, and green—onto white canvas, so that the color is evenly distributed and all traces of the artist’s hand are erased, a process that can take up to a year. The result is what Won considers a glimpse into his consciousness—color relationships that convey feeling and visualize his emotions, and which are imbued with an aura, a sense of age, and mystery. Won’s colors generate what he calls “resonance in harmony,” a cohesive equilibrium that recalls the principles of yin and yang.
