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.
