The Light_2017-02 *I used to paint easily and enjoyably imagining while listening to music. However I have getting through during the recent work of art. This painting cost me 5months, and now I laid the paint brush down. *My work of art is always a product of wonder, emotional experience. The experience of a wonderful moment makes me possible to be immersed in the painting while at work. *On a clear night without fine dust, I am often amazed with what the headlight makes. Blue, green and red changing their order would repeat aggregation and distribution drawing petals with wings. I am full of enthusiasm to design my internalized experience and fill the canvas with my internal experience because the wonder could not be taken by a camera. A banquet of marvelous colors made by collisions with headlights and objects, or the paint of queer lights on the corner of a car spread out before my eyes. My eyesight is falling due to watching such parade of colorful lights. Nonetheless, I was eager to represent such a charming flower of light with my plastic language. I placed the sun, the origin of light from far faraway space to the center of my little canvas. Then, the sunlight, shifted to my canvas, spreads out to various colors or distorts angles of objects. It aggregates one’s eyes and energy. *I would like to paint in the casual manner even if with a fine brush. The paint with a lot of brush strokes would look more spirited and dynamic since there is strength in numbers, the larger the number, the more strength. Today, I again take up a fine brush in order to express organic dynamics even though I have to make much more strokes with it than with a broad brush Hye-ja Moon, 2017-02
*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.
