SONG CHO Born 1959, lives and works in Seoul, South Korea

South Korean artist Song Cho mediates concepts of space, a reflection of the artist’s desire to search for new places to experience rather than depict ones that exist in reality. Her works introduce the viewer to realistic and imaginary spaces that co-exist through a combination of very minimal and almost transparent lines drawn over a geometric, bold-colored background. The works invite you to enter their world and escape reality, their beauty and strength apparent in their simplicity and the feeling of harmony they evoke within an urban landscape. The overall effect of a piece of Cho’s art is generally gentle and mellow. It is an art of fluid lines. What is most striking in her paintings is not the rhythm, so much as their quiet inner harmony.
