I stand at 5’8 with a blank expression on a straight face pointed by an arrow nose. I walk as twisted as my thoughts are when they race in my dimension called my head. My head, my refuge, my place of solitude, the safe house where thoughts roam free and ideas, dreams and memories never fade with the passing time. My heart beats for music; rock and hip hop/rap. The words of the songs are always pumping in my veins. Poetry, that’s what I call it, deep, rhythm tic poetry, so expressive, so passionate, it motivates me to express myself not just visually artistic but poetic as well. I hate speaking, I hate conversations, especially when I’m not in the mood, which is most of the time, and mainly I hate hearing myself, hate hearing my voice. People say I’m always smiling, always laughing, never serious, the truth is on the inside, and behind that smile is a frown. A big frown hanging below a two serious; angry, cold eyes; eyes that see the lies, pain, failure in my reflection. The reflection of what is yet to be found and until it is found I’ll keep hiding. Hiding out fear, fear of failure, fear of never to be accepted and never be found, fear of becoming a lost sheep in the herd called society.

This is ByungKwan Kim from Seoul, Korea. What I would like to express through my work is very simple. I am trying to bring out strangeness from familiarity (visual habit). Everything there is out there in this world, more or less, provides familiar vision. This familiar vision can be replaced as habit. This habitual vision which every object gives us and creates comfort. However it shuts down all the other possibilities. The habitual vision or visual habit makes us go by the routine ways. It stops us from having adventure and checking out the wonders out there. My work is trying to destroy, tear up, and reconstruct this habitual vision so that our vision can be expended to other images. I have strong faith in my work that my personal behaviour may lead us “strangeness within habitual vision off from the track.”
The artwork of Valerie Hegarty born 1967 in Burlington, Vermont, USA almost seems to hover between two worlds: those of art and real life. Much of Hegarty’s work appears to begin with a classically styled piece of “fine art”: a still life painting, or presidential portrait for example. In some way, then, the real world begins to impose itself on the work. Some frames and stretchers begin growing branches and sprouting leaves. Other paintings are riddled with bullets or burnt by fire. The story inside the painting violently mingles with a story outside of it. The painted world and the lived world meet to tempestuous result. via Hi-Fructose
