WonSook Choi: Road to Home
December 24 – December 31, 2020
Galerie Pici Seoul

Wonsook Choi’s mixed media painting layers delicate stories through the lens of the viewer. She incorporates Nacre into her works giving them depth and texture. The flowers whisper through the window, calling for the viewer to share in the artist’s experience of observation. There is something she wants us to feel, to consider when looking out at nature. We are so close to the outdoor scene, yet placed apart, as to not share in the same environment. We take from her title Longing and search for what it is that she desires. Is it peace? Does she seek a life of serenity? Perhaps she is missing someone or something that was once apparent in her life.

I paint my memories, my youth, my loss, my lack of… – WonSook Choi

Choi captures Mother Nature through a fisheye lens, from the perspective of the viewer. Her beautiful greens and delicate flower petals poke in and out of the lens, overflowing the small, but vast world. She invites us to share her experience from the outside in.

Wonsook Choi lives and works in Incheon, Korea. She continues to explore themes of “Going Home”, “My Home”, and “Longing”. The Lotus flower motif comes heavily from her youth, recalling how her mom would go to temple to pray while she would play around the temple garden, observing the fish ponds that surrounded it.
