About Yoonjin Jung
Yoonjin Jung produces paintings and site-specific sculptures and installations in which absence—negative space, the unseen—plays as important a role as what is actually there. “I think something invisible is more important than something visible, and we hardly notice something invisible in our daily lives,” she has said. “Without invisible elements like the air, light, water vapors, we can’t live.” Such intangible natural elements are frequent subjects of her practice, as in paintings on translucent silk or in works, often executed in pure white, that change depending on the lighting or the angle from which they are seen.
