YONG R. KWON

ABOUT ARTIST YONG R. KWON As I meet the darkness… Try being alone in pitch-black darkness and truly experience the darkness. On one hand, the darkness swallows everything around it until it seems there is nothing. On the other hand, objects will undoubtedly appear in the darkness. The beginning of all was darkness. As a door is opened inside the darkness, which once revealed no hint of consciousness, an excruciating yet warming ray of light pierces the door opening. Consciousness awakens within the dark of a coma-like state. The awakening is as short and concise as a shriek. My artwork holds light. It reflects light in ways that embody and make apparent the nature and existence of light itself. Light is scattered in a powerful...

JEONG-YOON CHOI

ABOUT ARTIST CHOI JEONG-YOON The work of Choi Jeong-Yoon is mainly in ceramics and installation art. He believes the conceptual truth of the root of human culture and desire is a sword, and attempts to visualize it. The artist’s viewpoint on a sword is not focused on its destructive function. He recognizes a sword as an object with a more original and productive function. The form of swod is remade in his work, and the organic shapes of flowers with dyed threads in splendid colors is combined to create a new form. The artist’s idea about the essence of flowers is their desirability, hidden under splendor. Thus, it goes with his idea on a sword that believes it as a conceptual truth of human desire....

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...

SANGHO SHIN

ABOUT ARTIST SHIN SANG HO Shin Sang Ho, an artist of clay, earned his fame through series of fired paintings and led the contemporary Korean ceramic art to the attention of the world with works that combine ceramic art and painting for the past 30 years. These fired paintings can be used for exterior material for buildings and a museum in Korea named ClayArch (Clay+Architecture) has shown potential of ceramic architecture by using Shin’s fired ceramic paintings to cover the whole museum. Shin first gained traction with overseas collectors with ‘Dream of Africa’ series, which was motivated by African art that fascinated him while he was a visiting professor at Imperial College in London. ‘Dream of Africa’ led him to be the invited artist in...

WOOKJAE MAENG

ABOUT ARTIST MAENG WOOKJAE I concentrate on art as a vehicle to communicate contemporary social and environmental problems to the viewer by stimulating, not just emotion, but sensibilities and memories. In this regard, ‘stimulus’ plays an import role in the expression of my work and in its perception by the viewer. Visually or sensually appropriate stimuli evoke curiosity in the viewer and their desire to grasp the inner meanings of the work. Within this process the viewer not only intellectually comprehends the work but also viscerally appreciates it if their preconceptions are challenged or senses other than sight are stimulated. This three dimensional appreciation-which engages the viewer both physically and sensually-I believe conveys the message of a work on a deeper level. In our environment,...
