Transformate Acrylic image to Digital art
Recently, I completed another new digital work by mixing the existing acrylic work. Its name is Korean Fantasia. After living in a foreign country for a long time, everyone becomes a real patriot. In particular, what was so natural is no longer taken for granted and comes to be unique. And it makes me think about the meaning of the holidays, traditions, and history once again.
Above all, Korean images and colors passed meaninglessly like the background around me before are particularly memorable. However, Now for me, everything I see in everyday life, such as Jangdokdae, gates, palaces, towers, and alleys, becomes art. The overlap between nostalgia and memories causes this phenomenon.
Before coming to America from Germany, my nostalgia for Korea peaked. I wanted to leave such a feeling in Germany, so I held an exhibition with the theme of Korea. I had a small show with my friends, such as a Korean singer, a pianist, and a Korean school principal who read Korean poetry. It is a beautiful memory that will remain in my memory for a long time.
At this time, I had drawn the Korean sentiment with acrylic in such a small picture. The sun, moon, mountains, and memories of moments have been found globally as subjects to paint. But I'd drawn the universal theme with Korean emotions and colors.
Living in a foreign country, I miss my hometown a lot, especially when I see the moon. Family and friends living in Korea will not be able to see the same moon due to the time difference, but we can finally see the same moon as time passes. Although we live in different places with different minds and environments, we always see the same moon.
If you call a Korean living in a foreign country "Kyopo" on Google Translator, it just says "Korean." That is, there is no distinction. The same emotion, the same soul and longing, everyone is the same person.
But when I looked at the moon in foreign countries and missed Korea, it had a different color and a different shape.
In this way, I projected my nostalgia to the moon and painted the moon, sun, mountains, and passing the time. These acrylic works were digitally recalled to create one job.
