Jung’s works are based on the visual concept of Multi perspective. While some of Jung Hur’s paintings are clear about contrasting the spatial orientation of traditional Western and Asian painting with Modernism, this painting creates an experience that is most easily understood in terms of postwar American abstraction or early European modernism. It is spatially vague, but it clearly engages the viewer’s body - vertical and bilaterally symmetrical.
The energy of the clouds of symbols has a vital essence, which is both like a person but also a literal constellation. Jung is allowing us to put the human body in a cosmological perspective. While the potential for philosophical ideas from this painting is both poignant and potentially endless, the work is a potent painterly object on its own. It’s like a moment of mental confetti.
