Seungbo Roh – Beachwood, OH
Seungbo Roh is a painter who lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. Her paintings are influenced by social complexities of the urban spaces in which we live. By focusing on these types of spaces, she wants to express feelings that are solemn and bleak, yet somehow splendid. Her work expresses the complexities of urban space, using the entire canvas to display these scenes in the second dimension. In addition, expanded second level dimensions and simple color are used to express her artistic intentions.
The instant space of her immediate environment is translated through her precise lines and brushstrokes onto the painting. In general, regardless of an object’s original color, she uses selective color to maximize the impact and emotion of the subject. Her works are based on daily life and experience, and communicates these instant images using geometric lines. She tries to express the beauty of simple shapes. Colors shown in her paintings are primary colors. The use of bright hues reveals the theme of instant space through the relationship between light and color.
Her artistic style and work’s world are models in this global period of 21st century. Speedily changing, the expression of the theme of a symbol and an image is the expression of our time. This is the interpretation of the instant space. We can think, furthermore, that her works are considered to explore the notion of simulacra’s space.
