Interview: Jay Chung
Luca Curci
 talks with Jay Chung during the 9th edition of LONDON CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR 2023 at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

“I have been dealing with colors since my high school years in our art class. And as a graphic designer for almost 40 years in my business, Jay Joshua Inc., I have been always working & experimenting with various colors in numerous designs for tourist market souvenirs. This solo exhibition will focus on colors and simplified forms in either abstract or objective. I especially feel like we need to recharge after the long painful monotonous life we have been suffering through over 1 and a half years due to the pandemic. I have been trying to relay the message of encouragement in vitality, ‘Recharge Life’ using bright and bold colors. I think colored resin is the perfect medium to express strongly those concepts visually. Most of the resin abstract works are done in multilayers, adding more 3D look in flowing patterns. Those patterns have been derived from primitive forms from the images manipulated by computer graphic software. Since graphic design is my major in school and profession, many of the graphic elements & colors are implied in most of my works that I think we can get more precise condensed messages in simplified ways.”

LC – How is your creative process?
JC –
I have been using mainly epoxy resin for 7 years. Resin is a very complicated medium to deal with due to watery liquid and takes a long time to dry. But through lots of mistakes and practices, I can manage the resin pretty well now in terms of expressing what I want.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
JC –
Yes, I want to have a very energetic, positive, bright and strong theme.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
JC –
I wanted to express “ RECHARGE’ energy after the pandemic years

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
JC –
Yes, I like the response and answer all the time when I need questions.
