You’ve got a lot that describes who you are—a photographer, a painter, a craftsman and so on.
My practice blends borders of all genres. To be exact, it’s more like realizing my emotions through diverse genres, rather than simply aiming to break the boundaries. Observing fragmentarily on a single otchil (Korean calling of lacquer) plate or a photograph won’t allow you to comprehend the overall meaning that spreads throughout my works. With that said, I address myself as simply as I can—just an artist and I exclude all the education backgrounds or my college major that may add biased views towards me.
That might sound a bit strange for people that are used to divided genres.
I make photographs, I make paintings and furnitures but all of these are just a mere process of journeying to a single work. If you look at them separately, they each seem to be lying in different criterias but they’re actually connected to one another, like the mobius strip, and all point to the same direction and become a single work that portrays an identical emotion of mine. All my works are born from my emotions and all of those emotions are scattered everywhere in this place, where you’d be able to witness the stages of my practice accomplished through the act of collecting, as well as the final outcomes.
