Seoul-based artist Miseon Yoon majored in textile artwork at Hongik College and was launched to the artwork scene together with her patchwork in 2009. Nonetheless, after grappling with household pressures over societal expectations and her personal private anxieties, Yoon ultimately broke from patchwork to experiment with completely different creative expressions. Redirecting herself away from the gaze of others, her present work incorporates elements of Cubism and entails the gradual including of shapes and particulars that replicate the method of discovering and re-assembling the fragments of oneself following deep hardship and trauma. Her use of spherical shapes can be meant to recommend the roundedness of a ball and symbolize a way of steadiness:
“I switch the sensation from being nervous by way of visible communication. My rejection towards the unusual that I’m crammed with is of course revealed within the work, together with the assorted photographs which might be inspiring at every second. I put my wounds on the desk within the methods simply as they’re. With the viewers’s sympathy, no matter how low or excessive the extent of it’s, my purpose reaches satisfaction with it. The portraits are supposed to be self-portraits of myself or of you. (The portraits specific the method of discovering id in depth of myself or of you beneath the appearances on our surfaces.) The unbalanced nostril and cheeks, eyes, and misaligned mouth is accomplished with my very own practical expression and the human traits to steadiness the within of a human being. Serious about the steadiness ball that all of us have, I needed to visually convey the nervousness, doubt, and concern which might be usually felt to not be price main in life as a driving pressure as an alternative.”
