Jang Koal 

image-60-768x991.png

Jang’s work evolved from figurative art into her signature art style. Blending cartoon-like forms with Eastern painting techniques, Jang Koal produces enticing narratives populated by a host of daring female characters.

Although she has a background in illustration work, Koal started out in painting and emloys age-old techniques, using multiple layers of paint on traditional Korean paper, hanji. Cat-like eyes, strong lashes, bright red lips and pale white skin are trademark features of Koal’s powerful figures, the protagonists in a world where exploration and discovery are key. As the artist herself explains,

“losing one’s sense of curiosity and the will to discover something new is even scarier than the unknown. “

 

 

 "무지보다 무서운 것은 새로운 것을 발견하려는 호기심과 의지를 잃어버리는 것이다."

장콸은 한지 위에 동양화 물감과 안료에 다른 매체를 혼합해 자신만의 확고한 동양화 스타일을 구축하였다. 서늘한 아우라를 풍기는 그림체와 색감으로 그려낸 작품 속 여성들은 고양이 같은 눈매와 눈썹, 무언가 빨아들일 듯 응시하고 있는 눈동자로 보는 이의 눈길을 사로잡는다. 작가는 얼굴에서 표정을 제거하여 또 다른 역동성을 만든다. 호기심과 희망을 가지고 나아가기도 하고, 좌절하기도 하며 고군분투하는 작품 속 여성들에게는 마음 속에 잔잔한 호수를 키워 나가는 작가의 모습이 투영 되어있다.
