Jaedon Shin’s paintings vibrate with colour, memory and imagination. Through the creation of dream-like worlds, the artist contemplates inter and transcultural experiences, interrogating his dual identity as a Korean and an Australian. Enduring impressions of his upbringing in Korea—a divided nation, where each side of the country lives in apprehension, fear and longing for the other—are conflated with reflections on the migrant experience. Shin’s highly personal narratives explore feelings of displacement and alienation and reveal a universal desire for human connection, identity and a sense of belonging.
