Artist Statement

 

My artwork is created using re-purposed newspapers. My working process begins with tearing and shredding the printed page in an attempt to eliminate pre-disposed information and influence of the everyday world. By transforming the materiality of the printed word, I aim to re-define the path of knowledge thru inner realization. 

                                                  

 

I create papier-mâché out of  collected all kind  newsprint and form the residual paste  into “dots” using a circular, concave mold. After making hundreds of dots, I adhere each one carefully by hand onto a large prepared canvas, spontaniusly  drawing   lines on draft. This vernacular of dots becomes a template for a universal language of forms well known to mankind: waves, spirals, circles and the cosmos. The two-dimensional surface of the canvas serves as a backdrop for the movement of these dots as they twist and float into 

 

 

 

I was born in Jin Ju, an ancient mountainou Meditation Center in South Korea. Growing up in this ancient culture has naturally influenced my art work and outlook on life. My quest in life and work is both a fundamental question and an answer to discovering my true nature and attaing spiritual enlightenment
