About The Artwork

This landscapes with rainbow plants and sofas always watch my solitude. This plant was bought by my mother when I was 13, so it is still growing in my mother's house. I was reading "Note from the basement" of Dostoevsky's novel in 1864. At that time I was very distressed and obsessed with how easily I could empathize with something like this story. I secretly enjoyed being the main character of the novel on purpose, but the twisty-shaped plants in the living room made me feel good. Now, when I paint, I quickly make fun of my brushes to get rid of the noise, but 10 years ago I drew the brush while dragging it on the surface of the canvas. In painting this picture, I tried to try my favorite Matisse's planarity and Impressionist painters dealing with light-handling techniques. I tried very passively experimenting with the plane and the depth with a still life in the space facing me. I hope to see it from the standpoint of existentialism.

Born in Seoul in 1979, I have been working in Korea ever since. I enjoy the values ​​of expressionism from a standpoint opposite to reductionism. In my paintings, many aspects of existence are expressed in color and filled with their own translations. A world where order and chaos are intertwined. I make this world a landscape. My paintings do not simply convey a scene, but offer them a ritual in a certain vortex. ‘I have been interested in the dynamic expression methods of classical music and baroque, and recently I have been working on the predetermination or delimiting of a certain flow based on one's own pure decision. When I hear music, certain scenes and stories come to mind, and these are all human emotions that cannot be expressed in words. Sometimes sad, happy, and painful emotions become the subject of painting. However, I am not interested in arranging those emotions, I only want to show the combination and order of the form. When I paint, I try to create as many complex compositions as I can as best as I can by throwing colors around. What comes to mind at that time is very specific, such as the bridges and roads I saw in the city, the color of the roof, and the shape of the buildings. When I make such a complicated composition with colors, the colors start to move and start to get on the rhythm. I follow those moments and continue composing as if I was creating a chord using the most pleasing state possible.’
