Comment
可愛いリボンやカチューシャ・編み込みなど、おしゃれにセットされた女の子の髪の毛が、とてもリアルに表現されている。しかし、どの作品も後ろからや斜めからの姿で顔は殆ど表現されていない。とても印象的なドライポイントで制作されている韓国の新進気鋭の若手作家の一人です。

Moon Jung Hee depicts a girl’s extravagant hairdo with pretty ribbons, hair accessories, and plaits with striking realism. All the figures in her works are viewed from behind or from an angle not showing their faces. She is an up-and-coming artist in Korea with her impressive drypoint technique.
