Hye-Ja Moon’s Art of Drawing –Like a Drawing

*Last winter I went to New York attending the opening ceremony of New York Broadway Gallery Invitation Exhibition.  The next day I dropped by Museum of Modern Art to watch <Broadway Boogie Woogie> by Piet Mondrian once more. It seemed to me that the painting composed of red lines and dots on yellow color looked lighter and brighter than before. After that day I felt so intimate with the painting even though I had seen it numerously. I recognized that artists would express a musical subject as light as a drawing in general. For example, paintings such as Composition series by Kandinsky, and paintings with musical themes by Georgia O’keefe in Whitney Museum of Art offered me to confirm that idea. Returning from the journey I felt sure through the works of other artists that the pictorial forms of my own that is being developed even today is suitable for expressing musical themes. It was too natural to verify but I was pleased.

*My Gap Opening technique got started to leave drawings on canvas and not to be covered by upper layer colors.  Because of the reason, I desperately try to paint not to make a mistake or not to retouch afterward. The moment of tension and harmony when music is performed with no mistake may be applied on my canvas as I draw at a brush to convey such energy to the viewers of my paintings. Furthermore I paint the first drawing lines which are very important parts to be left on the canvas until the final touch is made. I thought to myself that the drawing parts untouched might be compared with the dotted lines of <Broadway Boogie Woogie> by Piet Mondrian and then I felt confident. In fact, the painting by Mondrian looked significantly different from the others by the artist. It looked to me that the dotted lines in the painting might be the drawing the artist would like to leave, that is his first composition.

*I always try to present a painting of light like a drawing as well as one of tension and energy.

*When completed the left purple drawing parts on the yellow background color on my painting are minute. However, the energy they offer is so much great.  As I know it, I recently upsize the left parts of drawing.  I think that the effect of the drawing parts is appropriate to convey the keen feelings of each moment that music gives.  I feel as if I become a conductor.

    *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.
