HoJung Jun describes her loose, spirited painting style as "free from time and space." Jun works in extremely light, watery acrylic that butterfly kisses the canvas. Though the paint is thinned and very flexible, Jun maintains steady control over it to utilize an impressive array of pattern-making techniques. In some pieces, she orders her colors in meticulous rows of dots and dashes. In others, she allows the paint to drip and pool, blending shades and leaving washes all across the painting.
Because Jun's work is non-representational, it can easily fit into different eras. However, it is the lightness of the work - the dreamy and variable palette, the use of airy white space, and the evident delight Jun takes in letting her medium run wild - that truly makes it liberated from time, space, and any restrictions of one artistic style.
Jun was born in Seoul, South Korea and studied art in Italy, South Korea, and Chicago, the city she calls home today. She has exhibited across the United States.
