Landscape: about space and time

North View Gallery, PCC Sylvania, Portland, Oregon, 2019

I explore the possibility of expanding one’s perspectives by examining the uncertainty of visual experiences.  Why do two people see the same thing but have different stories?  How does the recent rise of societal polarization influence distort one’s way of perceiving?  As an artist living and working in the United States but having grown up in Korea, how visual experiences are interpreted in different cultural references was an interesting subject matter, and led me to investigate the discrepancy between seeing and perceiving.
