JANG SOON IM

In his native country of Korea, artist Jang Soon Im learned to understand war through the diluted romanticized images he saw on TV, in movies and in books. With history as his inspiration, Im uses these images to create an alternative world with himself playing every character in large historic battle scenes. A combination of collage, photography and print, Im's artwork, in both large-scale and small-scale, expresses a specific moment in the history of Korea.
