JEON explains that she sought to create images that were concretely abstract and abstractly concrete, like a chiral pair simultaneously present. Neither concrete nor abstract, the artist’s paintings present no definitive conclusions, denying anchorage to any meaning. The cone is not far removed from her earlier works where identifiable subjects were in conflict within a definitive context of a story. The realm between the imaginary and imitated, symbolic and the sensed, dictated and the implied is that of the image, not language. Conflicting elements of the paintings are entangled and dissolved in visual harmony.
