The Nostalgia, 2018
Lithography on paper
22 x 30 in / 55.88 x 76.2 cm
The process of my printing begins with the drawing of an image using ink and a brush on an acetate film for the screen. When I draw, I can release my emotions: happiness, sadness, depression, gratitude, passion, and energy. Making drawings like this is a longing for my language, which is Korean, an unconscious gesture.
