The scenery of purgatory is made by imitating the appearance of the present world, and 023 SIM_Scenery #2/10 shows purgatory in the form of '의심(疑心, doubt)'. Between reality and purgatory, when doubts about this world bloom and spread like hallucinations. 023 SIM_Scenery #2/10 expresses the oriental landscape painting of ‘purgatory of doubt’ with psychological colors.

SIM_Purgatory is a painting project inspired by the notion that "Giving birth to one life is same as giving birth to one death." The space before having life/death, which includes themes such as the responsibility of giving birth, the vanity and splendor of life, and death. It symbolizes 'purgatory.'
The first creation process is completed with a pen and marker, and the work is then completely reconstructed digitally by scanning it, and the second color is completed. These two stages of work are translated as "the way of observing purgatory" and "the way of being in purgatory," respectively.
Working with physical materials, such as oil paintings, can be destroyed. Because 'life' is a finite thing that will one day vanish like this physical artwork, all of SIM_Moby works are digitally completed to express purgatory, where life and death do not exist.
