Child Psychology in Picture Close
- Period/ 2013.03.09(Sat) ~ 2013.05.05(Sun)
My works on show at this exhibition aim to represent images from my dreams that made an impression on me during my childhood with reference to visual effects and principles found in specific notable paintings. They also intend to address the trauma I experienced at that time in three-dimensional installation work with reference to the principles of art psychotherapy. Inspired by the stark contrast of shades and surface textures in The Forest (1927-28) by Max Ernst and the unique, steep shapes found in the hills and mountains in the background of Flight into Egypt (1304-06) by Giotto, I compared such elements with those of the mountains I dreamed of as a child. The distinctive forms, tonalities, surface treatments, and techniques adopted in the two paintings were employed to create abstract three-dimensional representations of my dreams.
