Park Hyung Jin

Hyung Jin

Born: 1970 Seoul, Rep.Korea

Viewers may regard his works as photorealism. However, he says his pieces are the natural results of the processes of his work. What’s important for him is to create figures more accessible to an aesthetic utopia than real people. Unlike other photorealists, he does not stick to details when expressing the skin. He wants to express immaculate, perfect skin as sleek as Oriental ceramics. He represents perfect beauty through a process of modification instead of initially employing beautiful models. This is his way of expressing ideal beauty.
Unique images rather than extreme depictions are important to the artist. He wants figures in his works to provoke some atmosphere beyond the cool-headed objectivity of photorealism while maintaining the stance of realism. This is probably because he lives in an Oriental culture that values spiritual experience over reality. He lives in an environment in which he can experience both Eastern and Western culture. Such cultural gaps may assume a significant role in his work
