Korean artist Ceviga takes a unique and highly intimate approach to visualising perception, consciousness and spirit. 

The works created in  her decades-long practice – a continual development of painting and installation-making – have been showcased in exhibitions throughout the world, including the Palazzo Mora during the 59th Venice Biennale and the Saatchi Gallery as part of the StART art fair (2020, 2021). 

Ceviga’s pigment-and-acrylic series Pregnant Tree reveals a deeply introspective and monochromatic response to a post-pandemic re-emergence. The blood-red intensity and the fluidity of form symbolise rebirth and the flourishing of life. 

She notes: “In the universe, there is no beginning and no end. Everything is infinite, timeless. But if there were a beginning, it would be a dot: a tiny speck of dust. In the womb of the universe, we are that dot. When I face the canvas, my conscious awareness disappears. At that moment, I meet the unconscious. The dots on the canvas and my subconscious mind meet in the public realm. Countless objects found in the unconscious go through their respective births, then finally come to an end.”

Ceviga’s art studios are based in London and Seoul.
