Opening: Saturday, 29. April 2023, 17:00 to 21:00
Introduction: 18:00 by Klaus Richter
Heehyun Jeong was born in South Korea in 1984 and studied art in Seoul from 2003 – 2007. She then moved to Germany and studied free art at the HBK Braunschweig, most recently as a master student of Olav Christopher Jenssen. She lives and works in Berlin.
In terms of content, Heehyun Jeong treads a constant borderline between abstraction and figuration; she is concerned with bringing her own perception into a context that is logical for her. Subtle weavings, abstractions, traces of colour and blurring complement each other to create works of great compositional expressiveness that reveal a very distinctive, recognisable painterly signature.
