Jung Tae Kyung summarizes villages, fields, and piers in audacious
sketches, composing his scenes with motifs such as flowers, trees, or
bodies. The most eye-catching elements are the caliber of the brushwork
and color sensation alongside change and diversity in subject matter.
This style and be defined as moderate expressionism using broad brushes
and applying intense hues in swift touches. Lineal expression that is like
thick brush strokes in ink painting is quite impressive, but coloration
stands out, as indicated by his career of absorbing color abstraction
once. Things depicted with deft brushwork look antique, simple yet
highly refined, and strength and dynamism are sensed in their outlines.
jung often uses oil sticks for depictions while apply acrylic and oil
paints to a back ground. soft, strong, and dark lines exude a rich pictorial
quality along with rubbed or erased marks. Although he at times produces
non-representational works, he is surely an artist sensitive fundamentally
to form. As seen in his primary subject matter such as natural things about him,
the body, and landscape, in succinct sketches, we come to understand
he enjoys practical renditions rather than seeking abstract ideas.
Jung once symbolized the home of his mind and the ultimate purpose of
his art with the poetic theme, I go home. In works on display at the show
however, he extends the scope of his interest to the matter of his identity
with where is my friend's home. This endeavors are read as gestures to
grasp others while befriending artists in the Bangcheon Market. So his
motifs appear more appealing. He deals deftly with any material and
subject matter with audacious dexterity.
