The setting of the artworks, which are featured at the solo exhibition by Boyoung Jeong, Still looking, is mostly emersed in shallow space. Since the floor is only implied and does not appear in the paintings; only the walls of the building are depicted, which creates a two-dimensional setting. (Shallow space 1, 2 ,3) The subject matter of a curtain also covers the depth of the space and it faces the outer space of the screen. (Expanded edges, Obscured) Where the illusion is clearly revealed would be the connecting point into the reality, so that the shallow space which seems to be an extension of the wall that the artwork is hanging, is the suitable place for viewers to experience the space. The canvas becomes one of the walls, and the space which is surrounded by these walls span over two areas; reality and virtual. The eyes of the viewers, looking at the artwork, move continuously from the shallow space of the building in the painting, to the reality space, as well as in and out of the screen from the painting.

By brushing on the canvas; and the space that is created by erasing the traces of the brush strokes. It is uncertain how this space will proceed further, but the surfaces of the paintings continue to multiply and expand further for sure.
