Kim, Seung-hyun's 'painting that did not become a picture'
Kim, Seung-hyun's painting seems to have only been 'primed'. Such as canvas painted in red, blue or yellow. What for some reason he is not even able to start painting just by 'priming'? However, if the audience enters a step with Kim, Seung-hyun's 'primed' canvas, he will feel the delicate depth of the background color that looked like a primary color. The clues to the depth can be found in the traces of the four primary colors such as blue, yellow and green as well as the red color found on the canvas side.
Kim, Seung-hyun works on the canvas screen by repeating the background painting in 4 primary colors several times. Interestingly, his screens worked in four primary colors in different colors. If you look at the screens that look like blue and you see them one step at a time, you will find that there is a difference between the blues. Why did Kim, Seung-hyun repeat the background color with four primary colors on the canvas? Because Kim, Seung-hyun repeated his background painting on the canvas screen with various colors is his work. In other words, it is his 'painting' that he painted many times in four primary colors.
Kim's painting is not a work of special skill. On the contrary, he painted on the canvas with a brush that he often used when painting on a canvas. In other words, he laid down a canvas on the floor of the studio and worked with a broad brush to move his body and paint it with no special skill...
