FIRST PLACE WINNER: YOONSUN CHOI

“Woman”
She is looking up at the sky which means she wants better and has higher aspirations. The concept of the artwork is a combination of horror and beauty, which means it is scary, but also beautiful. I think it is the representation of chaos. She’s naked with her hands folded, she takes off her skin to show you her womb. Because the womb represents the potential for birth while the white flames mean the relations of the sexes.
