Paint Job is an on-going project that engages with everyday life and its social dynamic. It emphasizes the dialogue and the interaction rather than the final art as a tangible product. The colour swatch I am using in this project is called Algonquin Autumn: The name of the colour series suggests the idea of the Great Northern Ontario landscape and its pivotal role in the Group of Sevens paintings, and the underlining reflection on the Canadian cultural identity. As an immigrant from Korea, the act of self-invitation to various Canadian homes is an intriguing play on the idea of ownership.
