"Michael Joo employs a rarely seen range of language and structure, and his work represents a turning point in early 21st-century sculpture. Like Beuys, he creates a rich and complex oeuvre that is often misunderstood. Touted as shamanistic by some due to this reflective nature, Joo's art, in fact, embodies the eclectic character of the information age......Joo's work formulates far more than a singular and linear flow of events, creating multi-temporal pathways, a plurality echoing the nebulous flow of perception, information and identity." - excerpt from the text 'The Real and the Imagined' by Paul Black.
