Following the opening of the most recent exhibition ("images of us."), gallery writer Heesoo Kwon sat down and spoke with one of the participating student artists.
Q: Nice to meet you, can you briefly introduce yourself?
A: I am Yeongseo Bak, and I am in 11th grade visual art.
Q: Everyone has different poses for their portraits. Why did you choose to pose yourself like that for your portrait?
A: At first, i really had no idea which poses to do because we took a picture all of sudden. Then one of the things i hate is pigeon and i suddenly thought of that so i was like ‘okay let’s make the face when i am looking at the pigeons’. I don’t think (my pose) shows my intention that well. But still, that was what i tried to do.
Q: What was the most difficult part of this project?
A: For me, making it look like me was really difficult, because from the base drawing, it just didn’t look like me. So that was quite frustrating, but still I think it turned out okay.
Q: For your individual art project, will you use same or similar method again? And Why?
A: Probably not, the method was okay but i want to try other materials because there are so many materials i haven’t used before.
Q: From your art piece, with which part were you satisfied for the most?
A: In the beginning, I could see the texture of the hair. Then as I filled it up more, it started to look like a black patch. I actually like my lips and my nose, they blend with the picture well.
Q: And how about, with which part were you least satisfied with?
A: I think the forehead, because a lot of people had pointed out that it looks like I am bald.
Q: Thanks. Please give your final words to the audience of the exhibition.
A: We tried really hard, so take times to look at it (the exhibit). We really tried hard!
