Jon has exhibited widely throughout South Korea and in the US.
My work is minimal and inspired by unassuming objects. Noticing their
intrinsic beauty is my job as an artist. My relationship with the object is
analogous to that of a human relationship: Sometimes the relationship is
established over time, and the object gradually becomes a daily partner.
At other times it is love at first sight. Similar to a relationship, the goal is
not so much the final product, rather the process and experience is central
to the work itself.
