About The Artwork

Classic icon must be distorted when they've got through all the journey of time and culture. What I can do is that just assume the PAST filtered through these thick and blur lenses. So, What I paint would not be the icon itself but the surface of lens of time, which might be just stretched, or by which the image could be deformed or vaguer.

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."
