Date Work Completed: 2015-6 Medium: acrylic on canvas Size: 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches Description: The latest body of Mina Cheon aka Kim Il Soon paintings are her Dream Sequence painting series, where she is painting hot pink drip Western style abstract expressionist paintings. Due to the regimented military life under the North Korean governmental control, social realist painter Kim Il Soon is artistically liberating herself as well as from the regime in her dreams. The tribal unconsciousness for desiring abstract expression as a way of freedom of expression came to her as dreams. Here Kim Il Soon is holding up the communist Red Book while farming and working hard out in the fields.
