Simple but meaningful
Detail (상세도) <2020-2>
Recently, I am interested in to express a moment of ordinary people such as cleaning, sleeping, resting, praying, chatting, reading, going out. etc. Despite of them are plain things, I do my best to make it dramatic under odd and meaningful producing skills. Sub titles of <Sabbath> <Pray> are related in the spiritual life of believers’; <With a soft step> <Freedom> <Windy day> are related in the life of enduring: <Beautiful Chatting> are for the expression of loving in between peoples. Especially, <What life is...> is to solve the stern reality of life through humor.
Usually, I hope that these arts are over the limitation of two or three dimensional expression. Thus, I not only put a small sculpture into 2 Dimensional painting but also stand a representational sculpture on the upper ground of abstract structure. Furthermore, to remake the original paper based drawings as very simplified human shapes, I use a delicate thin metal plate and various thickness of wires. To protect it, permanent metal pigment are covered on them; and finally put on in the dramatically designed space; in certain cases, it appears that the effect of unexpected shadows or reflected lights on the vacant background wall.
Through the procedure, I want to focus on to extract the ekisu erasing from the extra part of it and make the subject of idea appeal. The main idea is to give certain message through the situation of a personage or couples. As a result, the goal of my art approach the aesthetics of Humanism to make it more happier and beautiful what the ordinary people’s joy and sorrows.
