Based on the work of Joseon Dynasty painter Jang Seung-eop, also known as “Ohwon”, BLOOM moves the center of gravity to abstractly express flowers in full bloom as a cascade of stars, the fluttering of snow, and the raining of flowers.
With no concern in creating a specific form, the work uses bright background colors, such as pink and sky blue, to blur the boundaries with the background and allow the shine of the mother-of-pearl to move rhythmically according to the light. Expressing the art of a prominent painter of an era through contemporary lenses, this new image transcends time between artists 100 years prior and after, allowing them to influence each other and commune, empathize, and communicate over the common theme of art.
