3. Uniquely, Seong Ryong Kim’s painting, Hug, is showing the relationship of a man and a woman where they’re molding into each other representing their close connection to one another. More in the man than in the women you can tell their tension in their passion towards each other. Using red to show their blood and some creases in their skin to identify a realistic part of this painting. Coming from a critic on this particular painting, he suggests this painter is, “…everyday life seems to be full of humiliation for him… The man motif of his work comes from the will to restore individual’s life and longing for auspicious energy through sympathizing the scars and mythicizing lost times.” Taking from the critics remarks, I would categorize this painting into the darkness of souls gallery. This idea obvious sprung from a deeper place other than just pure thought, but with emotions and ones that are not pleasant to everyday life.
