Dear. Kyeong-sook

Acrylic, pigment on muslin

Two figures, which are submerged in seemingly solid, pebble-like water, appear secretly under the light. The temperature of the water evokes a sensory experience of the outer boundaries of the body. The scene appears both vivid and ephemeral, not entirely anchored in a concrete world or a specific moment.
Their bodies are partially obscured, mostly hidden by the opacity of the ground. The gaze of both figures seems almost blind, only their intertwined hands seem to express any nuance, but the ambiguous purpose of the gesture - whether it is the action of pulling towards, or action of pulling down– captures various layers of impulses occurring in the relationship.
