| The universe embodied in the paintings of Kyung Bouhours is a singular one;
disquieting, enigmatic, eerie. Beings and objects born of a hybridization
of images and pictural experimentation haunt a world apart against a backdrop
of disused obsolescent industrial sites.
Head on her oils on canvas, by the play of opacity, tranparency, superposition,
drips set out a vocabulary of figures, signs, of unexpected objects and situations
in a dreamlike, fictional space.
The predomination of scenes depicting a struggle for power between humans,
animals and the elements transform what could be an exact, figurative representation
into a fantasmatical whole.
The picture becomes a meeting point between what is real and observed and
what is dream and imaginary. Her pictures are far more than depictions of
a particular scene but rather metaphors, views of the world.
Her canvasses have both the realism and the other worldliness of dreams.
They are paintings of a mind.
