Major in Studio Art. Painting.
Hello my name is Shinhye Kwon. Ever since I was a child, art came close to me naturally, so I decided to choose art after I became an adult.
Painting is the most appropriate for expressing the artist 's thoughts and the feelings. While thinking about what I could do with painting, I thought that I wanted to share my view with others through my own painting expression and method. The soft, flexible nature of oil paint allows me to capture small, delicate features in my environment. I use a relatively close viewpoint that encourages me to meditate on the tiny facets of the things I am painting in an effort to cause my viewers to reflect on them as well.
Work / Education
I want to make mundane, inconsequential things special through painting. Often, trivial things do not inspire people. However, I think this can change. The trivial parts of our daily experiences affect us unknowingly. If everything in the world were perfectly orderly and nonspecific, we would have had a boring and monotonous life. The specificity of the trivial parts provides us with fun, surprise, wonder, and curiosity. I create works that reclaim the trivial details in life as important.
