Jae Jo

Painter

I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts the Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul in 2014 and achieved an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art (First Class Honors), London in 2016. Creating starts from gazing. From the surrounding environment, I detach an eye-catching piece of this gaze. I collect fragments of the city such as some boxes and straws. The gathered pieces are reborn as objects and paintings in a new eccentric way.

I express my sensual order by randomly extracting debris of the cityscape, so to say, the leftover fragments of the greater system. I particularly collects vibrant colors from products and outlines from images to recompose them into drawing, painting, sculpture, animation, sound, and installation. Installation works that combine painting and sculpture. Each work articulates a spontaneous movement of an image forming into one lump. As a collection, the unit of time given to each work by myself in accordance with the gallery space as well as the elements of the image continuously gather and disperse. The result is an unexpected scenery of sensation.
