Andy H. Jung
“For a long time, I have been observing plants that are common around us. One day, I found a mysterious but familiar figure in them. Although they are immovable beings, I can see their aggressive and defensive shape in them at every moment. It was like the instinct of our humans.”
Andy H. Jung has chosen these colors for their symbolic meaning. In East Asian tradition, the color white signifies life, while red signifies karma, fate, or opportunity. Many works concerning karma speak that we, as individual people, meet countless opportunities and fateful relationships throughout our lives. However, it is not easy for one to connect them with our lives, expressing the different weight and feeling of life that one feels at each moment through the extra brightness and exposure in each picture.
