  • CHUNG, Sang Hwa  (+)

    Detailed Description : After Sang-Hwa Chung repeatedly employs the method of action consisting of “taking off/removing” and “re-painting,” small trace forms such as squares or triangles remain. This action of “formless” goes beyond the representation expression of pictorial dimension. That is, the subtle edges of the squares or triangles are created in the process of taking off the surface rather than painted directly onto the surface. They are subtle traces randomly generated in a series of “repeated” working processes as additional elements, and yet, at the same time, these vestiges are the clandestine essence of his oeuvre. Indubitably, Chung’s work deals with the awakening of the surface, or a reduction process toward the surface, through a logical and structural procedure. As much as the artist’s simple, repeated action is consistent, the colors on which he depends are quite limited, the main focus being given to the contrast of black and white; when blue and white are treated as gradation, dark brown tints are frequently visible. His recent work is characterized by blue hues; the tension in the contrast of black and white is replaced by the convergence of bright and transparent depth. There may be a compelling correspondence between the frequent use of blue color and blue sea, which he personally experienced, having been born in a harbor city and spending his adolescent years there. The artist most likely immersed himself in the sensibility and depth of blue color, which he directly observed. The shiny reflection on the surface of the water with sunlight overlaps on the surface of Chung’s work, which appears to create peaceful riffles. The artist cultivates his dreams while contemplating the blue sea and enduring the ages from a distance of time; he now looks back on the past of his traces as a form of meditation. - [The Surface of the Canvas as a Form of Contemplation: Sang-Hwa Chung’s Oeuvre], Kwang Su Oh (Art Critic)

  • YUN, Hyong Keun  (+)

    Detailed Description : Modern Korean art masters and their monochrome paintings are getting attention internationally. An official from Christie's office in Korea said most of the works were traded at higher prices than estimates. "Collectors from various regions showed interest in Korean modern and contemporary art," the official said. >>For more information, please click and see the news article by Kwon Mee-yoo Among them, Yun Hyong-keun(1928-2007) has long obtained a significant attention from Korean arts arena, Dansaekhwa, which roughly translates to “monochrome painting,” with his characteristic practice and unrelenting passion for arts. Yun Hyong-keun was influenced by the aesthetic concept of Informel during the period of Korea's abstract expressionism in the late 1950s, created expressionist paintings drawn by vertical painting gestures in the early 1960s. From the 1970s, he produced abstract paintings consisting of color surfaces or belts, then drew paintings using only green tea and blue colors as he gradually minimized the colors. His major work series are "Umber-Blue." *Dansaekhwa was initially conceived as a reaction to the ponderous academic style of the National Art Exhibition and a clarion call to responding to the wider philosophical concerns embodied by abstract art movements elsewhere in the world. Although Dansaekhwa partially emerged out of a respect for and desire to vindicate the strengths of indigenous Korean materials, such as raw burlap, hemp, and tak and hanji paper, what really distinguished it from other abstract traditions was its focused studio process that functioned almost as a form of hyper-aware meditation.
