The meaning behind Cho's portraits is - despite their convincing imagery - far from self-evident. One brooch presents you with a group of animals, in another several faces look you straight in the eye, often there is a delicate balance between the abstract and the figurative; the mood can be cheerful or dignified, but might also be verging on the agressive.
