Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Wookjae Maeng

Many artists have made work that communicates their thoughts and feelings about the social issues of their time. My works are in the same line and I hope that my works make small positive changes by giving people interest and stimulation.The theme of my work is to represent complex, ambiguous and uncomfortable relationships between man and other lives. Nature and animals has been an object of art for a long time. And, it will be continued until the fall of human being, although the point of view has been changed. There are 
lots of living creatures on the earth. The human is on the top of the ecological pyramid now and can manage all kinds of our fellow creatures. However, it is getting worse for certain.I always think about the balance, when I work over my ideas. I am using the strong visual parts and detailed expression to attract public gaze and then I want to give stimulation to people by the sensitive visual parts and moderate expression.
