Jung’s works are based on the visual concept of Multi perspective. This work combines different systems of painting. For the Western audience, the simplest way to talk about this is to point out the regular Modernist grid of keyhole forms in comparison to the gesso and panel underwork that radiates out from one point - like single-point perspective.
In Western painting, that is the difference between post-Renaissance painting and Modernism: The organization of the traditional painting is single point perspective, but Modernism left that “illusionistic” notion behind so viewers could see the literal stuff of painting on the surface.
Once we can bring in the keyhole as a point of perspective, it gets really interesting. One keyhole is the model of single-point perspective - it’s like a lens between the viewer and the thing he looks at. Many keyholes, however, means varied perspectives that cannot see the same object the same way.
