2014 Artist’s Note-Music for Ending Story

2014 Artist’s Note - (Music for Ending Story)

This musical album <Ending Story> rouses mostly lengthy and severe pain in me as well as enchanting landscapes. This contemporary music portrays agitating mental states of contemporary people.  That’s way I took this music as my artistic motif.

There are scary rockets flying with fire, enchanting rainbows, dancing girls light as a feather, pink flowers.  They are floating on my canvas. It is a symbol of double-faced life that a child runs innocently catching eye. It could be hopeful or sorrowful. Above all, this work has its importance in that a folded-paper crane with hope in a circle first appears in my work. The canvas is filled with various feelings and emotions, and folded-paper cranes with hope in white circles are placed amongst them.  On opening the box of Pandora, every things living with human beings flew away except hope that should stand by human beings even when devastated. Likewise, a folded-paper crane waits in a white circle to embrace people.

Recently, I face an amazing contrast of colors of the scarlet sun and the sky with a low chroma once in a blue moon.  It is given to me as a magnificent and marvelous gift by nature.  When it comes to me, I drive home in a very good forefeeling that I should fall into happy anguish at how to portray that beauty on my canvas. The amazing gifts given to me once in a blue moon are re-born as series of works, Music for <Ending Story>.  I think creative work, whatever it is, should be the consequence of the artist’s ceaseless exertion, and I have filled my whole life with creating works.

I re-create the tension and harmony of the music through my painting performance that doesn’t tolerate even a tiny mistake using my own painting techniques; gap opening technique, scratch technique, rainbow pattern, the display of a dancing girl, etc. which have been refined for years to make music a motif.  That is the Dynamic Breath mentioned by Jill Smith, an art critic in New York to describe the process of my work of art.  It means that narrow spaces left un-painted and rhythmic lines drawn by a fine brush is like my breath to pass the passionate energy on to my creative work

    *My eyes capture the flashy light that goes across in a still and gravity-free silence. And I remember all the traces of the light, and take each particle of it to the canvas, as if ksana(the very short moment of time in Buddhism) is eternal. Could viewers understand this work? I hope every brush stroke of mine will catch the sight of the viewer. My last challenge is on. As Mattisee filled his works with passionate colors, I fill my lights in the canvas with bright colors. Also, I try to portray the instant light that I experienced with only dots, lines, faces and colors of the basic elements of painting just like Mondrian did. Without my knowledge, my hand releases the brush when my eyes are restored to serenity facing the captured moment on the canvas.

    The intense light source disturbed the natural harmony with the rays… What should I do? … I hesitated for a second when I emptied the light source off the center of the paintings. After all, I made a right decision. I continued a new change in the light series. I am proud of myself in a plastic way of expressing lights without describing the intense light source. In the meantime, I think I am blessed about coming across the philosophy of off-loading. The shiniest moment flies away with a flash, but calm emptiness stays much longer and brings more… 12/26 2018 Hye Ja Moon

    Hyeja Moon, Artist’s Note 2018. Oct. 26 Offloading is making room for something new. I, offloading the intense light source, leave the center and fill it with my gaze, my imagination, and my pleasure for a long time. I leave the center without description unlike painting the surrounding lays of light painstakingly. The unoccupied room embraces the world of imagination. And isn’t the space the light itself! Because the empty space is going to be filled with various imagination of the world.
