Born in S.Korea and living in Paris, Jung-Yeon Min works at the edge of surrealism and abstraction.
"The main characteristic of my works is a kind of duality which finds many ways to express itself: abstract versus realism, ubiquity, diachronicity, microscopic and macroscopic, and so on. I’m always trying to engage in extreme or contrary dialogue. In abstract compositions, some hyperrealistic figures will make you try to find some kind of space, but you will keep wondering if you really have to see it that way, because something flat will try to impeach you. Somehow, you will feel like you are hanging between two worlds."
