Korean painter Yun-Kyung Jeong’s solo at relocated UK gallery Sumarria Lun – picture post

KOREAN CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERY LONDON

Summaria Lun Gallery mounted a solo exhibition of Korean artist Yun-Kyung Jeong’s works to inaugurate their new space at 36 South Molton Lane, Mayfair, London (UK). “Axonometric” was a May to June 2011 showing of the artist’s geometric paintings, which tinker with and skew perspective.

Gallery directors Vishal Sumarria and Will Lun describe the concept of the show:

…An invaluable tool for engineers, axonometric projection involves showing an object or structure in orthographic projection; foreshortening each plane of the viewing surface so they can be observed in relation to one another. With a power to fortify our perception of the world around us, in its most basic form axonometric perspective taps into our desire to see more, touch more, experience more. While much of Yun Kyung Jeong’s work draws on the application of axonometry it is this broader motivation to unveil new realms to the viewer that can be found throughout her work. These are landscapes, but in the loosest sense of the word.

With a blue-print type aesthetic, Jeong’s works aim, through planning and ruminating, to convey the perception of what is ideal. Each work can thus be seen as a representation of a particular utopia.
