The Gaze: To See And To Be Seen exhibition is about the relationship of seeing between figure inside and outside of paintings. Removing the element of the past, what the exhibition expects to show focuses on the gazing that is veiled and unveiled.

His master painter figure paintings have the projected artists sink into their own dreams and psychologies, with their actual pieces acting as the backdrop for their portrait.

With various representations of masters, artistic movements and painting styles, Seo becomes a protagonist in unique form of art history.
