Paintings and Drawings - January 22 until February 26, 2011
In my work there are some concentration, atmosphere, and moderation. These are all used as a means to express a feeling. My paintings result from a comprehensive rendition. They are all what I felt and viewed directly through my eyes, not any social issue and ideological notion. They are based on the process of making what I embraced through my recognition and perception part of myself.
(Wonkun Jun 2008)
Gallery Werner Klein is proud to present the first exhibition of the season
with recent paintings and drawings by Korean artist Wonkun Jun.
Colour, nothing but colour, is the fundamental element of my art. (Wonkun Jun 2008)
Jun describes his paintings as a manifestation of his sensibility and a reflection of his emotion. His paintings are composed of spaces of colour. He usually applies colours 20-30 times in multiple layers. The intensity of the colour can be sensed at the edge of the canvas, where the shrewd observer may discover a wide variety of colour coatings.
Wonkun Jun, born 1970 in Seoul, South-Korea, was educated at the Chugye - Academy of Fine Arts, Seoul, Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. In 2001 he graduated as a Meisterschüler of Helmut Federle.
