Yoon Jung-Won

Biography

Yoon Jung-won (b. 1978), in a more traditional vein, depicts on silk symbolic natural elements such as chrysanthemums, birds, stars and skies. Yoon’s blue pigment has been significantly known for its high quality since the Joseon Dynasty. By burning part of her paintings to make them imperfect on purpose, the damages epitomize human beings who are fragile and imperfect, but still beautiful and valuable the way they are.
