DAECHUL LEE

ABOUT ARTIST LEE DAE CHUL   Lee's works are combination of letters. These letters make words, form sentences, and eventually become an expression of his life experiences. He believes that words and sentences are the best way to document life moments and each of his artwork has captured the happiest, the saddest, or the most unforgettable and regretful moments of his life.

SHINYOUNG PARK

ABOUT ARTIST PARK SHIN YOUNG My prints represent the unique characteristics of today’s Singaporean society. To me, the most fascinating aspect of Singapore is its multi-cultural and eclectic society: diverse but not divided, busy yet orderly, where the best of both Eastern and Western worlds coexist. Through Ring of Chaos #, I want to capture these aspects of Singapore in tangling overlaid images which represent diverse ethnicity, culture, and custom, as well as the dynamic and busy lifestyle, over-crowdedness, and the equatorial climate of Singapore. In the Pearl of the Orient #11, the opaque white wash with cutout circles is used to highlight the systematic, orderly and clean city. It seems like dynamic characters and energies from various cultures are prospering inside of a perfect...

HAIYUN JUNG

ABOUT ARTIST JUNG HAI YUN Since I was little, I have had drawers in my desk. In each drawer I organized each object by its characteristics. It is like assigning a position for each object. The similarity of objects is decided by their size, usage or importance. All immaterial and material objects that exist in the world have their own place for their characteristics, and even the ambiguous objects can be created by the user as a new group by means of their roles and usage. I keep searching for the meaning of the individual and the whole in diverse areas by expressing the abstract meaning of the memory collection through drawers or vessels. I have been interested in and working on assembling a manifold...

SOOYEON HONG

ABOUT ARTIST HONG SOO YEON Life is on a continuum Objects settled in the Soo-Yeon Hong’s works do not posess a distinctive form. Therefore, the monochrome side that fills the whole frame catches our eyes first. About the time we are immersed in the solitude emitted from the monochrome side, the delicate tremble that shakes the tranquility is captured. Although that something which cannot be labeled seems like a crystallized image because it does not have a form, it shows its afterimage at the very next minute. The contour of the image is not fixed but slides into the mysterious moment between segments. However, the working method of Soo-Yeon Hong is the opposite. Rather, it progresses with thorough calculation and intention. The calculated slope of...

HYOUNGSUN HA

ABOUT ARTIST HA HYOUNG SUN Windows are where the inside meets the outside. Looking out of the window opens you to what is on the outside as well as making you aware where you are on the inside. What is out there is not always what you see from within. Sometimes you only see what you want to see. Sometimes you see only what the window allows you to see. Windows are timeless. A scene from a window embraces the past, present and future. The experience of contemplating and meditating through the window is like a passage through a projection of memories and dreams. Knowing where I am and where I am going both physically and mentally is important to me. In the Window Series,...

EUNGHAN CHOI

ABOUT ARTIST CHOI EUNGHAN I am constantly searching for the identity of ceramic art in the modern world. In contemporary art a vast range of materials are now used to explore ideas that cross territories which have few boundaries. Yet the identity of ‘ceramic art’ in my view remains best represented through clay and glaze. Working with the hands rather than machine can provide a strong emotional response to a ceramic work; subtle interruption of surface, manipulation of form, intervention with glaze and suggestion through colour. All take away from the recognizable regularity of form to create something fresh and new. As my work evolves, I experiment with the character of the clay and glaze. Clay can be broken, torn, stretched, exploded or collapsed to...

Her paintings of trees, full of artisan spirit drawn one brushstroke after another, have been recently introduced through Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair anc multiple art fairs in Korea.
