Hye-Ja Moon’s Art of Drawing –Rainbow Pattern

*As it is drawn with one brushstroke, the rainbow pattern looks tilted slightly but highlights the level of tension, which is one of the significant objects in my work.  In the winter 2008, the rainbow image coming to mind has become a decorative element in my paintings regardless of the feeling.

*In the summer 2009, the rainbow that was seen in the twinkling in the midst of Niagara Falls where I visited during the journey of Canada has been imbedded in my memory as superb scenic beauty.  The rainbow emerging from Niagara Falls blurred and was sometimes disconnected due to the pouring drops of water.  In spite of such a plain companion with giant falls, it came so natural to me.  I closed my eyes and enjoyed such feelings for some time.

*Then, one gloomy day I came across a rainbow behind the wheel returning home turning me melancholy into delight.

*The rainbows, offering me the experiences of feelings of wonder and delight as I mentioned above, have been allocated in a niche on the canvas for spatial construction, or for harmonizing with colors of other parts of the canvas.  As a result, I am now confident of using the term of Rainbow Pattern.  Because of its immanent property, rainbow pattern is harmonious with almost every color and sure to look good with any other images.  As my paintings visualize music, romantic rainbow patterns would be a substantial object. Such a scenic beauty is usually sudden on and off in nature. However, I’d like to make the feeling last long by placing the patterns in spaces on a canvas.  The seven colors are independent each other, but they look wonderful in rainbow. Also, I take an advantage of rainbow pattern in order to apportion equally the composition of a picture.

*I paint rainbow colors to be indistinctive by using harsh brush strokes and niche technique, which is intended to weaken the strong image of rainbow.  Someone might say, “my paintings are not meticulous.”

    *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.
