Oil Painting by Jeon Joon Yeop. 29 x 21 inches, 73 x 53 cm. Jeon Joon Yeop (born 1953) is a well-known artist in South Korea, with numerous art reviews. He was the top-selling artist in last year’s Korea International Art Fair, Korea’s biggest art fair. Instead of finding comfort in his successes, Jeon accepts popularity as a challenge to further explore how to speak the ancient language of Korean landscape painting with a modern vocabulary of techniques, such as pouring, scratching, spreading, soaking, smudging, blowing, and densely recoating oil paint onto the canvas. Another seemingly modern technique that Jeon employs, the presentation of multiple viewpoints in a single painting, is actually an ancient technique in East Asian painting. Jeon even adds the viewpoint of the person in the painting, creating an attachment for the viewer of the painting so that the landscape is not objective and detached, thus keeping, and sharing, the Korean traditional subjective and harmonious view of nature.
