About Eunju JEONG's works

Eunju JEONG is giving an innovative contribution in the fields of Abstraction and Minimalism. Abstract art does not try to represent a faithful depiction of a visual reality, or of nature itself, but instead tries to achieve an effect with the use of colours, gestural elements and shapes. The term can be applied to art that is primarily based on an object, or figure, where the main features have been simplified. Abstraction has been highly influential in modern art since the 1900s, with its origins grounded in Impressionism. One of the first, most influential movements related to abstraction is Cubism, with artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, who through their work laid the foundations for a significant number of branches of abstract art.

Minimalism is a contemporary art movement that started to emerge in the post World War II era, in New York city. The roots of minimalism mainly lay in a desire to create an art devoid of expression and metaphors, as well as distance the productions from the traditionally accepted standards of fine art. This mindset started to develop among florishing artists, who were bored of the current state of art, which they deemed dull and too academic. Minimalist artists really tried to break down all traditional and established conceptions about what could constitute art, making it one of the most radical and progressive movements of the modern period. Some of the key figures of Minimalism include Donald Judd, Dan Flavin and Frank Stella. In Minimalism, the central idea is that art should have its own reality, rather than try to imitate life. Indeed, the viewer is solely inclined to see the purity of the artwork presented, as defined by its formal elements, like line and colour, and to grasp the harmony of something which does not try to be anything else than what it is. Minimalism remains one of the most significant modern art movements.

Further Biographical Context for Eunju JEONG

Born in 1964, Eunju JEONG was predominantly influenced by the 1980s growing up. The 1980s were an era of developing global capitalism, political upheaval, worldwide mass media, wealth discrepancies and unique music and fashion, characterised by hip hop and electronic pop music. This had a heavy impact on the generation of artists growing up during this time.

The fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the decade marked the end of the Cold War, yet the era was also marked by the African Famine. During this time influential art movements included Neo Geo, The Pictures Generation and Neo-Expressionism, which took a strong hold in Germany, France and Italy. Artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel were key artists working during this period, alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, who developed the street art and graffiti movements, which quickly gained an influential reputation.
