‘Her Landscape’ is a series of works derived from the following question:
Why can we not see women in traditional Korean landscape paintings?
Cho borrowed the traditional styles of East Asian landscape paintings but changed the gender of the figures inside, denoting the fact the established East Asian art history has not represented the narrative, memories, and desires of women. By looking at the figure in the landscape, this series asks who has been the subject that experiences, creates, and possess that landscape.
