From the first glance at the images produced by young Korean artist Ilwha Hong, it seems difficult to notice that his women are aware of being seen. These women in advertising, with perfectly unreal bodies, of trendy News plastic, then metamorphosed into monsters capable of pinpointing our own morbid monstrosity, such as the dogs Actaeons.éons.
The classic mastery of the painting medium learned in Korean art schools borrows from the register of advertising imagery the ideal of the retouched body Peintureshop, a virtual image made to sell, from the tractor to cosmetics, all the objects of our consumer society originally supposed to lighten our daily life, gradually transformed into things used to fill a void, our void.re vide.
