Jeong Myoung Jo

Jeong Myoung Jo was inspired to pursue art by the beauty of Korean traditional clothes. However, Jeong’s work does not merely present colors and patterns. Looking at a woman in a beautiful traditional dress who has her back to the audience, you find the age-long remorseful lament of traditional Korean women or discover the destiny of the Korean people of having to carry the past wherever they go. Such diverse interpretations of Jeong’s paintings are made possible because the artist not only paints clothes but the women who wear them. Although the women in the paintings do not show their faces, as

long as what you see in a painting is a person, you are bound to interpret the painting in the context of society and history, and from the perspective of self-identity.
