A dark and evocative piece blurring the lines between realism and abstraction. Artist Seung Yim based the painting on Apollonian and Dionysian philosophical concepts to represent the opposing forces of mind and order versus passion and chaos. An animated and stormy rider leans forward on his horse, which appears grounded and stone-like. "This is a depiction of futility and delusions," says Seung. "Confrontation and confirmation that everything is equal and nothing is permanent."

Charged with emotion and high-contrast palettes, Seung’s realist paintings exude poignant drama. He begins each piece by identifying an idea or emotion he wants to portray. Seung then conveys that sentiment through the facial expressions and body language of his figures. Feelings of depression, disengagement, and hopelessness are conveyed with strength and beauty through the rendering of each subject. “I strive to shine light on the tragic beauties of life,” says Seung. By doing so, he captures powerful notions of the human condition.

Your new work titled "A Moment" is stunning. Works like these, realistic depictions of people painted with style and sensitivity is exactly the kind of art I yearn to call my own. Someday. Your work is beautiful and I so appreciate your talent.
