Artist statement
I think i have always questioned whether i wholeheartedly accepted the subjects i met.
I want to record my residence and its surroundings, which have changed constantly since my childhood and frequent moving and becoming an adult.
I wandered around various areas of Korea, Berlin documenting the landscapes.
When i laid out the photographs I could notice which things selected to look at and where my footsteps has stopped. seem to have remained in my memory as a kind of unknown oddness.
since then, I have worked with the theme ‘Improvise Collecting of Landscape’.
When I work I don’t really plan ahead. Everything is decided instantaneously in the process of my brush work.
I like the feeling of black and white. I think it is more abundant and it is a device that makes a Painting more like a Painting.
There is a certain sentiment that forms when the limited hues meet with the subject.
I like the feeling of black and white.

I also tend to purposely limit the use of colors The landscapes lonesome and with almost no movement.
As I painted certain landscapes. I thought I must stay with those landscapes while I painted them. I believe it is important to have a keen eye for the thing that enter my sight. I want to become an artist who paints them better.

The topic of translation is a very interesting subject for me.
The theme of my work is ‘Improvise Collecting of Landscape’.
When I encounter an impressive scene or subject. I tend to think a lot about.
I think that this topic always contains meaning and content of translation.
Collecting and translating the scenery and memories of my surroundings are important records and processes for me.
