The Texture of the Mind is a series that delicately carries inner feelings with light ink and subtle brush strokes. Each of the series has its own subtitle.

[ The Texture of the Mind ]
_
Times and dreams piled up seem to have disappeared. Yet fortunately, they remained. All of the settled emotions, though blurred, were precious.
I spend countless times in drawing innumerous clear and fine lines. Sensing the texture of my mind, I draw. As if recording the moment, I look into, think and breathe. Could there be any moment that did not shine? It piles up, goes up, breaks up and shines.

Everyone has very different personal feelings, but the spectators of my works depicting past or current experiences seem to empathize with them. It seems that an exhibition is to give the audience time to think for a moment and say, ‘Yes, it is so,’ watching the works that contain what the artist felt. Probably it should be enough for the audience to just encounter the spectrum of emotions piled up in layers, along with countless of strokes. They may not know what it is, but if there is something that touches their heart, that’s enough.
I realized that to be alive itself, and doing my best to live today, is the greatest beauty. I hope that the hours of healing I had while doing what I love will resonate with the viewers as well.

[ Countless Times ]
_
There are days that feel blurred and distant.
I had to draw, I had but to draw.
One, two…like counting hours.
Even on days that I felt I could do nothing.
Draw I must to even breathe.
Drawing innumerous clear lines,
I count the hours too many to count.
Ordering my emotions, I catch my breath.
The fine brush strokes placate my heart.
I take up the brush, I breathe.

One day I thought that my mind was like muddy water in a cup of glass. When I stirred it up, it was so turbid. However, when I quietly waited for it to subside, my mind became calm like clear water welling up from a spring. Whether my heart is quiet and serene or topsy-turvy in confusion, I looked at the white Hanji for a long time before drawing, looking into my heart. And finally I drew them into the paper after when everything settled down. Sometimes I put the emotions that had already been settled into the work; sometimes I worked while emotions were still raging inside me, and as the work progressed, they gradually abated. During that time, I look deep into my mind. The time to look back and reflect on myself is the time of healing. The process of drawing innumerable fine lines of Oriental ink with a small brush on Hanji is like an act of soothing the mind.

[ Accumulated Dreams ]
_
In the violent stirrings of the heart,
A tsunami had risen and swept past.
_
I weathered it, in my hands a piece of a dream,
Calm would always come with wait.
_
Leaning on support, I open my clenched hands,
And find relief that there is something left.
_
Repeatedly shaken before settling down,
The trivial seems as if it will pass without trace.
_
A ray of light peers out even through the faint afterimage.
The pile of dreams have become but a hollow picture.
_
Layers and layers of dreams both yours and mine, blend;
And will spread as a rainbow within a painting.

[ You and I ]

You I are
Two squid boats on the far off sea

Left alone on the night sea, deep and far-off,
Knowing not where they will drift away

Though tossed by the waves,
They remain close by as if connected by an invisible line

A sight of the two staying at each other’s side
Two lights shining far away

< Flowing woods >
Oriental ink on Hanji
44 × 37 cm

(2017. 6. 10)

_________________
This is an ink painting drawn in clear and transparent touches with pale Oriental ink on Hanji. A myriad of fine lines were drawn to carry unique patterns of trees and forests. Flowing Woods was inspired by the sea. Watching the sparkling waves of the sea, I wanted to let everything inside me flow away with the water. As I put one wave upon another, the Timbuktu forest that I have drawn in my works for a long time seems to overlap. The ideal landscape melts on the sea waves. Each of the memories that I put on the waves as well as Timbuktu are also melted together to form a forest flowing.
_________________

Among my works, the pieces that contain the images of trees and forests are called the ‘Timbuktu’ series. I named the imaginary forest in my work ‘Timbuktu’, which was a place I heard by chance. Regardless of the actual location, however, I just borrowed it because I liked the sound of the word. As I searched the Internet, Timbuktu was referred to as ‘a remote place’. It was just right for me. Since my forest is an imaginary one and so it exists only in my mind, it is the closest thing to me, yet at the same time it is a place far away from me where I cannot go. Isn’t this just what I want? I have been greatly consoled while drawing the Timbuktu forest. As I have been drawing it for a long time, this forest of symbiosis in harmony has been formed into my own unique pattern, into rounded or pointed shapes.

Flowing Woods is a work inspired by the ocean. Emotions and memories deeply immanent in the mind overlap the afterimages of the ocean. ‘One by one I place the sparkles upon the waves. They rise, break and twinkle within the heart.’ Then they become a forest and flow away.
