Headlight *Light and sound have something so called wave length in common.  For long, I have visualized acoustic wave and ideas caused by the contemporary music onto the canvas.  Listening to the contemporary music after careful selection, I got used to painting the simulated images, and letting the melody and my stories dance in harmony in my work place. Now I see the wave length of light from outside.  The euphonious music made by the light wavelengths in the night of the city blooms into flowers of light to me.

*Before , I was digging into the landscapes of artificial urban lights in the night returning home. When I viewed from the moving car lights of the street lamps flickered as flower heads did in the gentle breeze. Greatly enjoying the nightscapes, I admired for the artificial lights embroidered in the urban night. Since then, I have shifted my gaze to the headlights of cars coming and going by my side.  With the gorgeous but solitary urban night in the background images of the headlights persist in my mind till I portray them on the canvas, as the images from the beautiful flowers remain longer in the eyes even if they wither.

*I drew elaborately the headlight of a car in the urban nights in my work . As stone-throwing on a surface of a calm lake forms ripples that are growing bigger, a car headlight makes flower-like wavelengths of light that go farther from the light source. I formatively re-interpreted the nightscape with a headlight of a car entering my sight watching it with care.

*I have answered the beautiful charge given to my work by the past wonderful music through my recent work, in which light wave-lengths become sound wave-lengths then, they turn musical melody.  In I see my music dance itself.

    *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.
