Ban (Half Evening) [2009]

Watercolor & fluid acrylic; fluid acrylic on plexiglas

A self portrait using wordplays and multiple meanings with my nickname, "Ban". I've used two meanings from two languages. "Ban" in Korean means "half", and "Ban" in Japanese means "Evening or night", hence the title. The heart is actually painted on the glass framing the painting. Despite the bright colors, it's actually a sad portrait, painted at a time when I felt "half" myself.
