Artist list

Eun Yeong Jeong
It is like the body moving to a piece of music. It is like closing your eyes and paying attention to the movement of the paintbrush on canvas as you paint. The movement of the paintbrush is like composing a piece of music that can’t be heard but one that can be seen on the canvas.
Death allows a begging of new life. It is not an end. It gives an opportunity for contemplation and the appreciation of new and existing life. We cannot visualize our feeling, but it grows with time and experience. These emotions develop a form that continues to grow and evolve in our mind.
