Korean painter Kyung Sunghyun mimics overexposed photographs in his work, blurring faces like old memories that lose their precision with time. The characters are caught between expressions.

It's as if the artist has captured them in a state of change, freezing dynamic motion in one frame. Take a look at some of Kyung Sunghyun's work after the jump.
