a painting in progress

Jaeyeol Han has been continually experimenting with the sculptural and structural aspects of painting, currently focusing on portraiture. His experiments began during his military service in 2010 during which he was deployed to post-earthquake Haiti for seven months, where he began to be interested in existences that are corporeal yet invisible to the eye. The interest has since moved onto expressing narrative through painterly painting, and recently he has been enlarging his portraits collected over the last four years to extreme scales. Both as a contemporary artist and a painter, Jaeyeol now assigns his captured passersby roles as if they were actors of a stageplay, then combining them with a text using a narrative-based theatrical device; experimenting with the compositional possibilities of a flat surface.
