Seoul, South Korea, b. 1993

Alex Cho observes the subtle moments of mistranslations in his works. For him, these mistranslations are akin to off-pitch harmony or miscommunication that somehow makes sense. Information seems to overpower reality, appearing as translated or compressed surfaces. Amidst the current state of information overload, the artist seeks out gaps and errors that feel awkward. Using floaty drawing elements and a loose, painterly expression, the artist aims to react to and reassemble encountered information and events, creating new possibilities. The artist hopes to capture moments of awkwardness in these ambiguous spaces. His works resemble anti-humor jokes or awkward silences. The desire to go beyond information and drifting thoughts emerges on the surface of canvases as mistranslations, even if only superficially.
