Kim Eun-jeon and the exhibition 'Ilwoldo'
Ceramicist Eunjeon Kim's
solo exhibition at the Consulate General
Ceramic artist and mixed media artist Kim Eun-jeon (Centerville resident) is holding a solo exhibition at the Consulate General in Washington.
In the exhibition, which started on the 10th and will continue until the 30th of this month, a total of 9ceramic mixed media works, including 'Ilwoldo', 'Spring Scent', 'Cloud Pillar', and 'Moon Jar' are on display.
His representative work, 'Ilwoldo', is a work that adds pop art elements to the three-dimensional feeling of
the mountain, showing a woman plowing a field and seeding seedlings in contrast to the traditional court painting, Il woldo.
Kim said, “In order to express the world of creation in a more diverse way, I use ceramics and mixed media together, and I mainly work on harmonizing them in two dimensional, three-dimensional, and design ways.
The reason why I am particularly attracted to these materials is the heaviness of their nature. It is like a journey in life to visit and feel the touch of the absolute in a place that is unchanging but mysterious, embracing everything and creating order.”
She graduated from the College of Fine Arts at Hongik University, and is currently working as an advisor after serving as the president of the Washington Art Association.
