Jieun Park (Korea)
Korean artist Jieun Park transcripts in her work the simultaneous emotions of excitement and loneliness of travel. Jieun’s painting reveals entire nighttime cityscapes embedded in the blots of paint, glimpses of Paris, Lyon, Hong Kong, Prague… “My personal feelings are described as under-painted ink marks which are instinctively spreaded and dropped on the surface. As I create relatively realistic images of the city within the abstract ink marks, I try to record ourselves in this fast changing city and its double sidedness where colorful impression coexists with loneliness.”
Special songs for special moments.
It’s hard to get around the wind // Alex Turner
I can hear you through my window
but I’m never quite sure who is who
but they want the world on a dessert spoon
It always sounds like they’re fightin’
or as if that’s what they’re about to do
It might not hurt now but it’s going to hurt soon
The king of Marigold was in the kitchen
Cooking breakfast for the queen
The queen was in the parlour
Playing piano for the children of the king.
Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She’s old enough to know better
So cry baby cry.
And I waited for your kiss
Waited for the bliss
Like dreamers do
