Abstract environments by Jung-Yeon Min

This is the work of Paris-based artist Jung-Yeon Min who paints these dreamlike worlds that ride the line between beautiful and grotesquely disturbing. She tends to include elements of realism in the work, usually in the form of a tiny person representing herself, who seems to be exploring the vast abstract landscapes made up of organic and undulating forms. In a statement by the artist, she sheds light on this relationship. “Born in Korea — a divided country — I live in France, and feel like I exist between two worlds. In my daily life, I often serve as a link of sorts between members of the Korean community and other groups, and somehow, this interesting condition also reveals another side : the sense of being nowhere. That feeling has made its way into my paintings regardless of my intentions.”
