In her paintings or drawings, Han Jin represents landscapes lucidly imprinted in the body (memory) among superimposed or messed up times. These can but only be expressed as the artist's memories, but they are also those which exist somewhere in some point of time that we also live in; thus, the artist states that her images are "representations" with distinct subjects. To express them, Han traces, explores, and depicts the subject to the limit-which is also an attempt to bodily represent a landscape inscribed in the body and to approach the certain point that the representation takes place in person. The artist eventually let goes of her brush at the moment when everything that only the artist knows becomes exposed. This enables the viewers to get access of the landscape the artist represented, and at last, perceive them inside the time of present.
