    Artworks

     

    The motif of Shins work is everyone and anyone. They include a traveler with a deeply furrowed face that the artist saw one day at a market entrance; bright little boys and girls passing beside his studio; a fat souvenirshop owner the artist met by the Eiffel Tower about 10 years ago; a ridiculous figure in a film by Charles Chaplin; and his daughter playing the violin. The fragments of memories pass like a ride in an amusement park quickly or slowly. With a silicone syringe in his hand, the artist depicts those who left him painful or delightful memories, those who he has seen in a magazine or in a dream as they come to his mind. While the city he lives is often considered to be a battlefield of cutthroat survival, the artist regards it with awe and affection as a place brimming with interesting and exciting energies. Shins painting begins by drawing out thin silicon lines from a syringe after spreading waste newspaper on the floor. Momentous, immediate action is required to continuously draw without cutting the silicon. These sketch-like figures represented only with faces or at times with their bodies are unrestricted and lively, and then they are glued onto the canvas, adding interesting texture to the flat surface.
