화가 이정연‥의식과 내면의 초상(肖像)
At a glance, the pictorial surface of art works of Rhee, Jeong Yoen are with full of spots building turbulent surface of the imageries with similar looks of mollusc, wriggling lines, massive lump of pigment with implication of hanging of the surface and the traces of delivery of brush with splashed pigment, etc.
The coloration she has adopted is quite limited to dark, thick umba color and jade green, the tones of these colors are well combined and matched with the color of the ground of hemp cloth, absorbing a deep and calm atmosphere with an atmosphere with an associated image of Indian ink painting touch.
It is, as a wholly, much resembled the earth with an extreme disorder and generation of life and totally of nature. For this reason, the whole image of the surface filled with motifs evokes our sentiment toward the landscapes of the earth.
Adopting diverse materials, she has magnificently represented a world with full of sensible atmosphere, breaths of the objects and vitality, which also are associated with images of Oriental landscape, of it presents us an innumerable thoughts, memory, ritual with variously emotional flow of similar touch of the portraits lying in our inner world.
Her paintings are approaching their viewers in a form of landscape consisted of the traditional, Oriental world combined together with her particular subjectivity. They would calmly evoke our visual line and emotional aspects creating gentle ripples and infuse a vibrant life, speaking something to the viewers; thus her painting suggest us a landscape combined with nature and consciousness.
