• Human Body, the Sign of Sensualism and Desire

Kim, Young Ho (Professor of Chungang Univ. Art Critic)

Shin, Je Nam's human body aesthetics has two phases. One of them is Platon's view that takes the soul apart from the body and defined the body as a jail of soul. The other one is Aristotle's which asserted that body's beauty is extracted from soul's beauty. These double interpretations are well melt in his paintings :Putting a mess on the body regarding it as the origin of evil, valuing high the body as the container of beautiful soul from Aristotle's aesthetic point of view. His pale silver bodies are dedicated to the transcendental beauty by applying the style of 'Aesthetics of Idea and Symmetry'. And there hide sensualism, senses and destructive trap which we can't find in the academic aesthetics.

Shin's Nude is complex like a plot of novel presenting lots of materials. For example, recent fighter's metallicity awakes speed and dynamism, furthermore the lingeries and high hills are the metaphors of modern women's sex appeal. In 'Dual Images of Madonna' the star reflects his mental state looking at popular culture and routine daily life. Elsewhere the images of china, moon, perfume and tobaccos are playing the supporting roles on the human body aesthetics stage helping the artist. Porcelains and flowers expands the meaning of womb to the collection inclination. Recently those complicity was simplified on the big screen forecasting the changes.

For the last, I would rather point out his surrealistic language in his human body aesthetics. That language leads you into symbol and metaphor which have critical meanings. I feel that he should take it a good task, making it as his own artistic grammar. On the surrealistic hill, his bodies ask questions to the audience. In the modern society, is the body a jail which confines soul as Platon said? or vice versa as Foucault said. As surrealist dreamed the nostalgia on the horizon of reality, the bodies in Shin, Je Nam's paintings are coming true ontological meaning of modern people beyond the biological meaning and you are witnessing him create neo-culture and history right here.
