Heemin Chung
lives and works based in Seoul

Heemin Chung delves into the transformed states of image existence and perception within an urban, technology-mediated society, examining their profound impact on our ontological sensibilities. By scrutinizing the essence of media, Chung's oeuvre reexamines traditional subjects of painting genres within today's visual landscape. Through evocative visual metaphors that transcend traditional representation, Chung captures the intertwined nature of digitally mediated lives, portraying a continuous stream of metaphysical occurrences within digital culture.
