 Monochrome (DanSaekhwa) has become the mainstream of Korean paintings.

 I have been studying literary and oriental paintings, and have learned that even though monochrome

has been abstracted into Westernized painting, its color and development method remains oriental.

My work comes from the oriental nature of the material, and pursues mental stability and comfort by

targeting the presence of matter. The infinite notes within my established painting are portrayed as both creative and abstract images, along with repetitive energy. Just as there are no limits to the space on the canvas, it is infinite space that comes from the marginal technique of oriental painting. I have also expressed my presence of healing with mental images. I believe that my consciousness of self through this abstraction concept will give a time of healing that touches the mind of others.
