Her consciousness moves toward harmony in her painting but at times causes friction, collides with each other, is combined and broken again and sometimes creates optical illusions. These processes are expressed by flows of lines such like tubes, and spreads or traces of colors. Above all, the structure of the layers of the colors and the harmony it creates make the viewer realize the beauty of not only the construction of the consciousness but the deconstruction of the consciousness. Color may be most important in the artworks of Nakhee Sung but the object of analysis is not. There is no meaning implied by the colors she uses and there is no symbolic interpretation or social allegory here, so the power and authority of the interpretation goes back to the viewer.
Nakhee Sung’s works show the flows and structures of her consciousness and the process of expression. They comprehend the meaninglessness of dividing things like confusion and order, sentiment and rationality, abstraction and conception, object and space and it lead us to imagining in a free, private and individual way.
