CHO Yea Jae

Born: 1971

Hometown: Busan

Based in: South Korea and Spain

 

CHO Yea Jae was born in South Korea in 1971.
Resolutely modern with various interests in philosophy, society and the environment, she is an artist of contrast and attracts opposites. Her works are based on the continuous observation of the world around her.

Whenever Yea Jae finds the time she travels to other parts of the world experiencing different cultures and meeting various people. Throughout the years all these encounters with multi-cultural backgrounds not only helped her develop a strong empathy but also inspired her with the beauty of the difference and a deep understanding of humanity.

Through her works she expresses the simple conclusions drawn after the tortuous journeys of the mind and soul.
Different meanings emerge from the same painting, this artist wishes to offer free interpretation to the people who watch and feel her minimalist art works.

Humanity is strong and beautiful. This is what she ultimately believes in and with this in mind her “Ready to open” series was born as a symbol of HOPE. Who denies we need it the most to change for the better?

With "Transcendence", she presents a conceptual abstract minimalist series with an eastern Asian philosophical approach.
At any given moment of our life we look at our past, feel our present and think of the future. It is most important yet difficult to find the perfect balance and harmony between these 3 elements. The big contrast between the rough “imperfect" texture and the smoothness of the perfect paint brush strokes for the grey and the black parts creates a visual shock to emphasise the dramatic contrast of life.

Her first exhibition was staged in Hong Kong in 2000, since then she has participated to various exhibitions, international Art fairs, and special events.
Recently she was featured in solo exhibitions around the world (Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris) and in 2 featured exhibitions in the Hamptons (New York).
Currently she works between Korea and Spain.

About CHO Yea Jae


IconInspires

What inspires you?

Science, Psychology and Philosophy help me understand the world applying logic and intellect. Ultimately, Art and philosophy are more intertwined than we think. Art needs a philosophical focal point to delve deeper. Philosophy needs artistic flexibility to think and open up to the outside.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I relax. I enjoy the moment and my surroundings. That’s when my imagination takes me further and sketches the images in my mind. The research and development of new techniques, textures, brushstrokes, or the search for more durable colors, are also relevant elements of my creative process.
