Immanence ( Materials Series )




As a painter, I have experimented to expand the boundary of painting. I tried to transfer the main agent of painting from the artist to the material, starting with the ‘Wall’ series, and a methodological approach with a different view point brought me to the ‘Composition’ series. While I was working on the ‘Wall’ series, I often said “I stopped painting.” Obviously it didn’t mean that I literally did so, but rather I meant the action of painting itself was the main goal, not that it was a means of expressing the artist’s thoughts, ideas, and feelings. It was brought into being as the ‘Composition’ series, and then the ‘Materials’ series in which, departing from painting as a means, material acts as a start point, and the artist puts more weight on passive or spontaneous responsiveness than on activeness. This ‘step-back’ methodology allows me to accept more objects from streets and walls as a ‘painting’ while my spontaneous response. Through the whole process of collecting street objects my point of view of the cities turns more active on the contrary.


Most important is that all these attempts are also painting.

페인터로서회화의 경계를 확장하고자 하는 실험을 계속해 오고 있다회화의 주체를 작가에서 재료로 옮겨  시도를 ‘Wall 시리즈에서부터 시작했고이를  다른 시야와 방법론으로 접근한 것이 ‘Composition 시리즈이다

‘Wall 시리즈 진행해 가면서 ‘그림을 그리는 것을 그만두었다 말해왔다이는  그대로 그림을 그리지 않는다는 것이 아니라그림을 그린다는 행위를 작가의 생각과 감정개념 등을 드러내는 수단으로 삼는 것이 아니라 자체를 목적으로 한다는 것을 의미한다이것을 더욱 실천으로 옮긴 것이 ‘Composition 시리즈이다그리고 이를 통해 ‘Materials 시리즈 나아갈  있었다


위에 언급한 수단으로서의 회화를 떠나, ‘Materials 시리즈에서는 어떠한 물질 (Material) 시작점이 되고작가의 이러한 거리감에 대한 방법론은 ‘Materials 시리즈’ 작업의 주체인 재료들에 대한 작가의 반응(수동성 혹은 우연성)  중요시하며 진행됨으로써 도시와 거리벽에서  많은 것을 회화로 수용할  있게 한다이때 거리의 오브젝트들을 채취하는 과정에서 작가가 도시를 바라보는 시각은 역으로 더욱 능동적으로 반전된다.  가장 중요한 점은 모든 시도가 페인팅이라는 점이다
