Boyoung JUNG (b. 1973, Korea) depicts images of light and space and paints the story about the space where she witnessed them. Lighting is a very important device and that is why Jung's paintings discuss more than a representation of space, despite the absence of figures. The lighting appears as a meticulously adjusted stage, expressing sentiments of familiarity. This is due to Jung's artistic process of capturing her actual surroundings and making note of her observations and feelings. These moments appear and disappear like daylight, or the candle flames often found in her paintings.
Boyoung received her Ph.D, MFA and BFA from Hong-ik University in Seoul. Her works have been featured by numerous solo exhibitions presented by Kumho Art Center in 2001; Kumsan Gallery in 2003; Leehwaik Gallery in 2007, 2012,and 2015; and many more.
