“Betwixt and Between” is an extension of the Korean Cultural Center’s animation exhibition,
“Awesome Blossom.” The characteristic figures are created with simplified lines that are
inspired by an artist’s desire to express the junction of their thoughts and emotions.
The correlation of these thoughts and emotions create art that speaks to the audience
before their eyes.
The existence of these linkages also provides the evidence of the relationship between spiritual interests of the artists as well as the genesis and development of the characters’ unique and instinctive lines.
In each chronological event of the artists’ lives that involves spiritual and emotional contact with related figures are turned into simple lines of characteristic expression.
The viewer is encouraged to see these excerpted characters as the artists’ emotional, psychological and philosophical aspects of the artists’ daily lives. When the role of these highlighted characters is revealed directly with the viewers, it stimulates an imaginative power in the audience.
