About the Work

Explanation

John Doe is an English personal name used to refer to an unidentified person with no name. The artist intended the image of John Doe to be a simple form and simplified colors so that it does not refer to a specific person. This figure is a self-portrait that can be viewed by the artist or us in a one-person media society where anyone can be a star.

Early 'Still life' Series

Early 'Still life' Series

Hong Kyoungtack began his series of "Still life" paintings in the 1990s
when he was in his third year of university. He realized that our lives
and the things around us are similar in that they are transient,
so he started painting objects made of plastic.
In the context of the accumulation of not only materials but also still lifes,
it shows an early work in which lightness and heaviness,
pleasure and pain, color and black and white, pattern and realism intersect.

'Pens' Series

'Pens' Series

His art material, ‘pen,’ may seem too simple,
but the artist deals with modern people’s dual and
obsessive desires with allegories of skulls and dolls
appearing in the form of pen caps,
a stacked screen composition,
and the seriousness of writing mood.

'Library' Series

'Library' Series

The ‘Library’ series was inspired by Chaekado
(fixed paintings of brush, paper, and ink)
in the late Joseon Dynasty.
The bookshelf, which seems to be closed, is filled
with smooth-texture books, single portraits,
and icons of traditional paintings.
