About The Artwork

One of the dilemmas of painting that bothers an artist is the fact that paintings always form meaning, or narratives when they have figures. Furthermore, the more familiar the image is with the subject, the more likely it will be. My works begin at this point. It is like stepping out of a solid surface, and I want to see all of a sudden at some point in this misbehavior to be a completely different version of the original sources.

How do you do, all? This is kim byungkwan from Seoul, Korea. What I would like to express through my work is very simple. I am trying to bring out strangeness from familiarity (visual habit). Everything there is out there in this world, more or less, provides familiar vision. This familiar vision can be replaced as habit. This habitual vision which every object gives us and creates comfort. However it shuts down all the other possibilities. The habitual vision or visual habit makes us go by the routine ways. It stops us from having adventure and checking out the wonders out there. My work is trying to destroy, tear up, and reconstruct this habitual vision so that our vision can be expended to other images. I have strong faith in my work that my personal behaviour may lead us “strangeness within habitual vision off from the track."
