YIM JIN-SEONG

Yim Jin-seong paints based on the tradition of Korea’s Real Scenery Landscape but he is not confined by the dogma of the tradition. Rather, he achieves a contemporized style by having diverse experiments, and therefore, extends the boundary of Korean traditional painting. The series of Yim’s painting <MongYu Geumgangsan(夢遊金剛山圖)> in the style of Golden Powder Landscape Painting (金粉山水畵) shows what the artist experienced from Mt. Geumgang where it is believed to be a utopia by Koreans since old times. After decades of the division of the country, when the first tourist business was started by private enterprise, the artist had an opportunity to visit a remote village located on Mt. Geumgang. He witnessed that the opening of Mt. Geumgang tourism ironically took away the living places of the North Korean people who were there. After this incident, he came to see Mt. Geumgang not as a utopia but as a floating space between reality and an ideal world. Thus, the series was started to state the artist’s opinion about this circumstance. As a result, the artist has emphasized the boundary of his ideal world using delicately overlapping lines of golden powder applied with a thin brush stroke, based on the technique of Chinese ink and wash painting.
