6–20 November 2019
Private view: Wednesday 6 November
Minyoung Choi is an artist who focuses on painting. Her work shows a mind which observes its surroundings. It is the quiet voice which has mixed and varied feelings about what it sees around it, almost like a nostalgic or innocent observer.
While some of her previous works reveal obviously imagined fairytale-like situations, anthropomorphic animals, symbolic images, primitive instincts and playful figures, recent paintings clearly show her attraction to her more current and real surroundings. The combination of ordinary objects in her paintings – i.e. a laptop, electronic gadgets, ornaments, stationery and so on – she frequently uses, induces a meditative state to the observer. It becomes clear that Choi is evoking elements of her previous works and includes them more subtly in these new daily scenes. This makes for a much more surreal experience as the fantastic is not a dominant presence but more of a subdued feeling.
