Park Jinah’s paintings are casual and purposely clumsy depiction of moments in everyday lives. In early days of her artistic carrier, she painted people and movements on several canvases with photograph that she took with LOMO camera, which allowed her to take two or four consecutive images in one frame in order to explore variety in painterly depiction as the setting allows her to present the time difference, various composition of an event. Later, the artist moved on to single canvas work. Quick, bold brush strokes enabled the artist to reveal characteristics and traits of the subjects. Textures by swift strokes in reserved color tone constitutes her serene sensibility rather than detailed voluminous expression.
