Artist’s Note by Hyeja Moon- <Composition> 2017


-I start working for the new series of <Composition>, thinking about meandering and strained curves of a grand piano. I am grateful to an art critic, Soyoung Cho who has recognized my work of art with music. – Hyeja Moon the artist, Oct. 2017



*Red, Green, and blue (the 3 colors of light) are points and lines at the same time in my recent works. I started the series of<Composition> based on my own visual experience of light. Each lay becomes longitude, and the pigments or colors on the lines are the latitude which would turn into the elements of curved planes in the <Composition>. I come to grips with the colors on the lines to make curved planes all day. By doing this new way of painting, I tone down the screen and express a kind of rhythm. Also, I divide the screen to shade. It’s not easy to find an absolute harmony for the right division. I always fight for catching the point of view where points, lines, and planes are harmoniously balanced. I felt fresh when I found some monotonous parts in entanglement in the previous works. Of course, getting rid of the complex is not an easy task. I had never spared time for the drawing when working.


*The division planes of the canvas show my feelings of brightness and darkness. I make my great effort to draw the lays of light due to the spaces that they take up. The lays cannot be seen by colors with our naked eyes, but actually various colors compose the light and the ratio of the colors and the direction of the lays vary at every moment and at every circumstance. Then, the lays of light make shade as well. The collision of light with mass generates the dark and the bright. Each lay has a speed of a blink and a highlight. I think it the main theme of <Composition> that each lay of light with a story expressed by the 3colors of light composes simple and curved planes adding to the amusement.

    *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.
