About

A breathtaking oil painting depicting lips in motion with a photorealistic style that brings the viewer in for closer inspection. The details are flawless, as the glossy lip is defined in an impactful, yet delicate way. Roh Jae, who lives and works in South Korea, is impacted by the history of his country, and the endless stories which flood the city from which he is from. Markings are noticed on the lower right lip, symbolizing that beauty can be hurt, and we all have a story to tell. A truly unique and stunning work which is dramatic and sensual, and has been executed in a masterful way with exquisite details. This painting is signed lower left and comes framed in a contemporary custom frame with hanging wire. This painting measures 20.5 x 28.5 in Framed measures 21.5 x 29.5 in Looking at the works of Roh Jae-soon, we can feel many stories being told through just one simple element: the mouth. Roh refuses to let daily life slide by, incorporating elements of sympathy into his paintings. If the sentence inscribed on the wall becomes a sentence, the lips on the canvas will tell stories as if they had become a reporter. We can hear the cry of the times through Roh Jae-soon’s canvases, embracing the stories of the world. The lips drawn on the canvas are about to tell a story. Roh's drawings are not simply the lips, but the ‘expression’ of the lips. Roh Jae-soon began to draw from the early days. Sometimes he drew the whole body, but mostly focused on eyes and faces. This collection of the lip work has its significance in telling the story of the world. The moment the artist commits the photographed lips to the canvas, the atmosphere and message of the artwork are determined. For instance, tight lips express the absence of communication and open lips the carpe-diem kind of gaiety. Depending on the expression of the lips, some lips suggest hope for the future, and only the lips are highlighted. Roh expresses the lips in various ways. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. Signed lower left. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
