JUN Young Jin
(b. 1983, Korea Republic)

Painting as a medium has survived for thousands of years and is one of the oldest and typical mediums of all times. It had once served as recording tool for religion and history in general while its identical crisis was driven by the invention of photography. It was Modernism to make painting re-settle down as a major creative medium; Post-modernism yet disguised it as cliché among the diverse new mediums today.


Jun’s prior task is to recover the painting’s status back and it is the artist’s concern to work on the illusionistic paintings which was led by modernism and also linked to conceptual art in that the canvas is not shown by its own. Jun’s paintings are by three ways - revealing words, reconstructing, and layering paints. For her, it is “Painting for painting’s sake”.
