Jung’s works are based on the visual concept of Multi perspective. Jung Hur paintings have included his personal symbol, a stylized pair of shapes that represents a key and keyhole. He uses these symbols to activate many ideas, but one of the most important goals is to deny the assumption of single-point perspective.

A single keyhole is a model for single-point perspective. Jung rarely uses one keyhole in his paintings; he often covers his large canvases with the symbol in great clusters or grids. He tilts them, so the shape becomes an oval — a circle seen at an angle.

He often put different shadows on them; the shadows also rebel against the idea of a single light source. “I also switch between the key and keyhole shapes to further vary the idea and to convey the notion of Yin-Yang,” he explains, “which formed the basis of my philosophical understanding of the world.”
