<바람의 꽃 Fleurs de vent> 
Novembre 9th - December 9th, 2023

The "Fleurs de vent " exhibition by Jeung Hyun, will be held from November 9th to December 9 at the Art Salon de H gallery in Yeouido.  The artist who has been active in France for more than 30 years, explore a modern interpretation of woodblock prints, The title of "Flower of the Wind (Fleurs de vent)" was taken from the title of Jeong Hyun's solo exhibition held at the Print Art Museum in Grablin, France from March to August this year. Inspired by the changing seasons and the reblooming of flowers, she delicately expressed the beauty of nature in her sculpture language. In Europe, where Japanese and Chinese printmaking has been the mainstream of Asian printmaking, Jeung Hyun has been drawing attention by freely interpreting Hangul, and by looking at the nature through pure printmaking, showing various forms of printmaking and expression.

After growing up in Korea, she moved to France and passed her doctoral thesis about the study of the margins of prints " Le corps du Vide dans la grave " in 2001 at the Arts plastique of the University of Paris 1. She studied with Jean-Pierre Pincemin at Beaux-Arts in Paris and explored Chinese woodblock prints in Beijing. Her work on engraving is not seen as a reprint, but as a one-on-one production of uniqueness and overlapping colors to secure the depth of space. She applies the singularity of the painting to the engraving, which evokes poetic sensibility to the viewer.

판화 제작 과정의 단계를 관찰하면 예상치 못한 일이 나타날 수 있는 수많은 기회가 드러납니다. 조각한 나무판과 종이와 만나면 불완전하게 건조된 잉크 층이 섞이고, 이미지가 나무의 결과 섞여 시공간이 열립니다. 따라서 결과물에는 계획할 수 있는 것과 계획할 수 없는 두 가지 구성 요소가 있습니다.

내 작업의 핵심 중 하나는 열린 시간과 공간입니다. 나는 예술에 생명을 불어넣는 힘을 예술가가 물러날 때만 표현될 수 있는 힘, 즉 비움의 시간과 공간에 양보하려고 노력합니다.  
나는 자연의 소실과 생성을 바라보면서 그 유한성의 아름다움을 탐구하는 여정 속에 있습니다

Now is the time for Jeung Hyun, who is fascinated by the French art scene, to really take place in Seoul.
