Oil on canvas, 80×116cm, 2016

Se Kyung Kang shows the boundary between reality and desire through a car trying to escape the frame with a vibrant use of color and a strong presence in the black and white world caught in the frame. A car that breaks through the familiar and common black and white landscape is actually a classic car of the past that may be found in museums, but it is expressed in a hyper-realistic way so that it feels vivid. A car that seems to want to run with speed shows the relationship between reality and the desires of modern people who cannot completely escape from reality. In her work, we are reflected in the image of us now wanting to get out of the present era, longing for lives on glory of the past times.
