Gunwoo Shin Biography

Gunwoo Shin (b. 1979) creates works that are described as 'sculptures of theatrical situations'. The character in Shin's relief work is positioned front-and-center like an actor delivering a soliloquy. The background is boldly simplified or surreally composed in relation to the character, resulting in a captivating theatrical presentation. Counterpart to his stage-like relief works are his high relief works that push the actor further out past the fourth wall. The scenes in Shin's paintings are allusions to a stage completely cleared of actors.
