Noh Jun's
Kiki thinks what he did, 2011

Fiber Glass Resin
50 x 39 x 50cm


The images produced by Noh are imaginary characters. The characters are analogous life forms non-existent in real life, similar to those animals in manga and anime. The difference between them is that Noh's characters are made out of his ownunique imagination. In other words, Noh did not depend on or reproduce existing character images or icons; Noh put intense labor and efforts to carve, chise and refine his sculptural works. He does not repeat or borrow the already-made. Noh produces things similar to existing images but with tenuous distractions - a crack in usual familiarity and friendliness; he plants his creative icons in the crack. His objective of making these animal characters is to bring back the long-forgotten hopes and dreams, to recollect memories of childhood play, and to inspire instinctive aesthetic sentiments.
