Chae Eun Rhee – Paintings
Chae Eun Rhee's paintings are assemblages in which time, media and history intertwine. For example, the Arnolfini portrait of Jan van Eyck appears next to K-pop star 'V', a figure from Pieter Bruegel's The Parable of the Blind walks in a row with streamers of paper men without eyes and in almost every painting there are references to Alfred Hitchcock's film The Birds. She always uses recognizable and less recognizable images from Asian and Western cultue, so that almost no one can recognize all the quotes on her canvases. In this way Chae Eun Rhee creates a new world, in which new connections and meanings seem to arise naturally.
Art critic Hans den Hartog Jager says of her work: 'Chae Eun’s work even occasionally recalls some pre-Enlightenment and pre-Renaissance western art, which was composed according to non-linear

temporal and spatial paradigms unlike those we are accustomed to in today’s ‘enlightened’ world. But if you open yourself to it, as in the work of Chae Eun, there emerges a surprisingly fresh and exciting and seductive alternative scenario by which to perceive our world. More eternal. More universal.'
Chae Eun Rhee currently lives and works in Seoul, South Korea and is an artist-in-residence at the Seoul Museum of Art. In 2020 she completed a guest residency at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. In the Netherlands, the work of Chae Eun Rhee was shown for the first time in 2020 at EENWERK gallery in Amsterdam, and this year the same gallery showed her paintings at Art Rotterdam. Since then, her work has caught a lot of attention from major collectors and museums in both Europe and Asia. At the end of 2020, Museum de Fundatie acquired the painting The Moment Your Smile Fades Away (2019) for the art collection of the Province of Overijssel.
