‘Opportunity’ and ‘Hope’ beside you
Opportunity and Hope are invisible, yet they’re always next to you. I embodied these invisible opportunities and hopes in a special image. The special image being an imaginary animal in Korea. These animals appear in traditional Korean paintings called ‘Minhwa’, which were meant to illustrate people's freedom of expression and reveal their innermost thoughts and dreams. Minhwa paintings were often hung in people's homes in hopes of bringing good fortune. With this in mind, I wanted to expand on the message that good things are always together, leading me to produce work with a Korean folk painting element. Through my work I hope to inspire many people to live their lives with the hope that good things will happen to them.
