<The Most Beautiful Days in your Life> exhibition by artist Jo Min-Young has been held at JW Art Gallery since October 12th. This is awesome news for people who want to enjoy the arts fitting in this clear and beautiful weather like these days.
Jo Min-young, widely known as a painter of abandoned dogs, graduated from the Department of Oriental Painting at Hongik University. Besides, she flew to France to major in art at Saint- Étienne. She hasn't painted for a while, but her passion for painting has always been in her heart. After returning to Korea, she started drawing abandoned dogs by chance.
Most of all, this exhibition reflects the intentions of art director Lee Ji-soo. She has a long-term friendship with Jo Min-young. She has been a supporter who has been taking care of her. Also, she has encouraged her to focus on painting. As a matter of fact, art director Lee Ji-soo emphasizes that, as the title of <The Most Beautiful Days in your Life> implies, the most beautiful days are not the outward appearance, but the inner power. Moments of happiness don't last long, and neither does sadness. She explains that life is but a dream, so you have to be humble.
She made an art director's notes, and there is this phrase: “The supreme and blooming time of my life. ‘The Most Beautiful Days in your Life’ is a series of falling blossoms and full-blooming, and the journey of life is fleeting in the inevitable existence of myself. In this way, the narratives of all living beings who are rambling in the garden are completely melted in this exhibition. It not only delivers a message about human dignity to the audience but also reminds us of the preciousness of living objects.
JW Art Gallery has held the first solo exhibition of the exclusive artist Jo Min-Young, and planned various lifestyle accessories such as cushion covers and blankets with the motif of her work of art, at the same time. Art director Lee Ji-soo addressed that through this exhibition, she hopes that more people will remember their happiest and most bright moments. On the other hand, the exhibition also includes 12 portraits and will be open until mid-December.
