Cha Yuree transports us into the heart of Korea’s Jangma, the rainy season known for its intense heat, humidity, and rainfall. The piece masterfully encapsulates the essence of this season through a visual symphony of melting and sweating florals, each petal seemingly alive with movement and change. The print is further enhanced by the meticulously added gloss of water droplets, creating a tangible sense of the heavy, rain-laden air. Central to Cha’s work is the portrayal of Korean women, a tribute to her own matriarchal lineage. These figures, drawn from the stories and strength of her grandmothers, stand resilient and graceful amidst the tempestuous backdrop of Jangma. Their presence is a powerful statement on the endurance and beauty of the feminine spirit, deeply rooted in Korean culture and history.
