Sketchbook: Landscape in mind

From April 10 to June 14, 2019, the museum’s 10th Painter Program “Sketchbook: Landscape in mind“ will be held at Hanwon Museum of Art.

The exhibition for the Painter Program has been ongoing since 2010 to promote the continued growth of Korean traditional painting and to provide young artists with opportunities to exhibit their works and this year marks the 10th anniversary of the program. The program has become a gateway to a new generation of artists and has presented the possibility of contemporary art with a total of 59 artists, who have delved into subjects from different experiments on traditional media such as “Sumukhwa,” the Korean ink painting, to various social issues. By observing the development of the participating artists, the museum has been able to fully confirm the various orientations and values ​​of Korean traditional painting still in our present time, and was able to find a future direction of it.

The 10th Painter Program “Sketchbook: Landscape in mind“ has been developed on the question of how Korean artists reflect the cultural demands of the present age on their own artistic viewpoint based on contemporary emotions and experimental expressions. The two emerging artists of this show, Minjoo Kim and Minwook Jin, who repeatedly experiment and research in material, technique, and screen composition while retaining authenticity with the solid identity of Korean painting, are exemplary artists, who convey the beauty of Korean traditional painting in their works.

Paintings in a sketch book are sometimes composed of the same subjects and narrative methods, and they are especially important for understanding and studying the trends and characteristics of works by the painters. In this exhibition, we will look at how to perceive and experience the meaning of 'place' through the aesthetic gaze of the two artists, and to show works created by new space and time by reconstructing daily scenery and familiar materials. The artists themselves question how the simple expression areas of Korean traditional painting are connected with their images and how they communicate with the present. The scenes reproduced by them superimpose the objects of reality and shape the product of the related experiences at the point where the boundary between virtual and reality becomes blurred.
