KwangHo Shin captures the complexity of human emotion with his latest series of abstract portraiture. Sacrificing detail for substance, KwangHo Shin purposefully obscures the facial features of the subject in order to convey the intricacy of human emotion. The clashes of paints are an ideal metaphor for the human psyche.
