K&P Gallery is pleased to present to you 'Beyond Here and Now Wonderful Life' by artist Rayoung Ju.

She focuses on modern people who are anxious and are overworked. With the purpose of showing people in times of hardship, Rayoung has created a portrait of people in the depths of their stress and despair.

 

She has provided a brief statement exemplifying her work:

...

"Where I go and how I live are the ultimate questions, I have presented this through a humorous tone for the audience. The world we see is the projection of information saved by a recognition system of our own life. The object varies depending on the change of my cognition. Therefore, the world is varied by how I recognized an object.

 The object of recognition is just the combination of holistic information projected by my experience and the production of a visible hologram image. We call the assembly of such an information of life and live with misconception.

 It symbolizes the prison of cognition that human desires operated as the existential life created their own image and cause disorders of true communication and human beings live in the prison of cognition they have created.

Life is just a bunch of flowers.

 

 The speed of the life is expressed through the shape running into the various aspects. Characters wear the dress with patterned design suited to individual life and arms losing the function of hands stretched forward powerlessly. Expression of the people who run blindly is empty because this world is just hologram image made by our own recognition program and it is virtual image.
So people with extremely heavy and sensual impression are produced as if they put on high heels unrealistically and run like flying."

 So people with extremely heavy and sensual impression are produced as if they put on high heels unrealistically and run like flying.  

 

What is the pure essence of human being and who am I from existential view?

Life is like a flower that blossoms for a day and suddenly fades away!

It is an assembly of brilliant moments appearing and vanishing.

As soon as we realize that, our life would be wonderful.
