Biography

Yun-Kyung Jeong describes the marks she makes on unprimed canvas and silk as being “like controlled exhalations filling a space.” The Korean painter, whose works play with perspective and exploit empty space to create complex, vaguely architectural environments, finds inspiration in Gothic architecture and biological processes. Raised in Korea but educated largely in the United Kingdom, Jeong now splits her time between the two countries and has been credited with finding a delicate balance between Eastern and Western artistic traditions. Jeong renders her delicate ecosystems in muted tones, sometimes using digital engineering tools such as axonometric projection to create immersive, three-dimensional worlds of overlapping planes. These hybridized landscapes—influenced as much by naturally occurring patterns as by manmade objects—are often inspired by humankind’s fascination with idealized utopias.
