Ji-Eun Yoon

Ji-Eun Yoon studied art in Seoul for four years and  completed her university career at l’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In her artistic practice she draws from the oldest and most traditional techniques of etching, lithography, pyrography, and their irreproachable and remarkable accuracy. Ji-Eun draws on and cuts a sheet of plywood by following the lines that are inscribed. She reads the years, the time of growth, as one reads the age of a tree, and keeps the memory of these passages. Her vast, grandiose landscapes are reduced to a flattened geological model where the figures appear tiny and out of place. Distorted proportions convey the feeling of incompatibility of the characters with the world around them – they appear locked in an inner world,  yet the eye goes directly to them, giving their life meaning.
