i’m jealous of jung eun park


Sweet little houses all alone on, um, big leafy planets…? Ok, I’m not exactly sure what they are, but that does not stop me from loving them! Korean artist {now New York based} Jung Eun Park created these images as part of a series of drawings called “Missing Home”, and the inspiration behind them is really quite lovely:

Mostly my work has been about a relationship with my mother since I moved to New York and being separated from my family in a long distance. It became interests about a difficulty of communication, a fear of unconnected relationship, and a burden of being an independent person. I express my mentality caused by these problems with symbolic objects, human body and red thread in my drawing.
