Oan Kyu Jung
Oan Kyu lives and works in Rome, where she combines her training as a calligrapher with her fascination for Italian frescoes and other wall painting traditions.
Oan Kyu, takes a highly abstracted approach to calligraphy, between visual art and writing, where dots and lines are rhythmically woven together into a hypnotic texture. Her work has drawn comparisons to American abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, who share her interest in the act of painting as a quest for self-discovery.
Works from Oan Kyu’s “Earlier than Writing” and “Wide” series are in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea.
