Sun Young OH(b.1987) selects words such as forest, rainstorm and sunshine that often appear in fantasy literature and composes paintings. The words seem to point to a definite object, but the images seen on media such as books and TV go through a vague and abstract mixture of associations. Therefore, excerpted words consist of unrealistic images in fairy tales that are not ideological or belong to specific times and geography. She duplicates the familiarity of words and the alienation of images painted unrealistically in her work. This is because the way the light-colored balls appear to fly into the canvas and attach themselves to capturing instant images, not actual depictions.
