Woo Min Jung (b.1985 in Seoul, lives and works in Cheonan) received her BFA in Oriental Painting from Seoul National University. Her painterly technique uses ground earth (mud, dirt) as a foundation for carving, layering, and painting over wooden panels. Depicting dynamic, abstract shapes, bodies full of life, and often referencing natural elements such as water, fire, and wind, Min Jung’s paintings represent vital dynamism: in her artworks, time becomes fluid. The microscopic and the macroscopic intertwine and become one. Often deploying figures performing repetitive actions, Min Jung explores how attempts that may initially seem destined to fail may be crucial for our vision of a better tomorrow. In her paintings, snakes, grass, elephants, rainbows, and other non-human creatures come together, swim together, and move together towards a brighter future. Woo’s works have been shown in numerous solo presentations including BER at Chosun Gallery, Seoul (2022), Pastry at Jaha Museum (2020), as well as in group exhibitions at various art institutions such as WHITE BLOCK (2023) Suwon Gwanggyo Museum (2022), Gallery Moth (2022), Sanjicheon Gallery (2022) and Culture Station Seoul 284 (2020).
