When looking at the work of South Korea’s 최수앙 (Choi Xoo-Ang — or Choi Soo-Ang, if you are to use a more typical romanization), one might envision creepily realistic human forms life-sized enough to hug and share sympathies with. It turns out that Choi’s figures are actually tiny resin sculptures worked over meticulously with oil paints, to a degree so remarkable there might be a painting milestone in there somewhere.
Though you will not find much in the way of English articles about Choi’s works, rest assured that they are commentary on human empathy and lack thereof, selfishness and presence of, and the contradictions present everywhere around us, in modern “civilized” society.
