한번의 숨이 ‘나’ 이고
그 순간이 ‘나’이다.

저절로 일어나는 나의 자연스러운 숨 (호흡)에 현존한다.

한 숨 한 숨 모아져 선과 면으로 표현된 형상은 우주 삼라만상을 표현한다.
한지와 섬유를 결합한 텍스쳐로 점묘화를 시도한 회화적인 작업이다.
한 올 한 올 밖으로 빠져나온 한지의 입체적인 질감과 직조된 블루톤의 섬유가 조화롭다.

breath by breath

Point by point

Dots, lines and faces become the entire universe.

“One breath is me“

“That moment is me”

This work is a art piece made with a special technique we have developed which shows a new way of “pointillsm” made of paper and fabric.

All our work is related to nature.

This specific handmade technique, point by point, dot by dot, star by star, is a long meditative process that connect us to cosmos.

90 cm – hemp

 

들숨 O 날숨 U

들이 쉬는 숨과 내쉬는 숨 없이 인간은 단 몇 분도 존재하지 못한다.

호흡을 통해 삶과 죽음의 양면이 갈린다.

나의 생명에 가장 밀접한 숨을 자세히 관찰한 적이 있는가?

어떻게 숨을 쉬고 사는지 알고 있는가?

인디고 칼라로 염색된 삼베를 컷팅하여 나선형의 구조로 만든 원형 설치물이다.

 

Like all things in nature, repetition changes everything.

It is repeated, repeated and transformed into other forms.

Daniel Kapelian – video and sound – edition of 10 – 1/10

 

에너지는 지구와 우주 사이를 가시적이고 비가시적으로 끊임없이 흐르고 있습니다.

생명의 진화는 깊은 바다에서 끝없는 하늘에 이르기까지 수직 상승 대한 점진적인 도달에 의해 주도되었습니다.

이 추상적이고 최면적인 영상은

물질과 비물질을 경험하고, 우리 자신의 의식상승과

몸과 마음이 분리되고 해체되고, 중력 법칙에서 해방되는 명상 과정입니다.

우주에 대한 우리의 외부적인 관계는

우리 자신과의 내부적인 연결에서 부터 시작되고 드러납니다.

우리가 그것을 발견하는 순간, 우리는 그것을 자유롭게 흐르게하고 상승 시킬 수 있습니다.

 

Energy is constantly flowing between Earth and the Universe in visible and invisible ways.

The rise of life has been led by a progressive reach for verticality, from the deepness of the ocean to the the endless sky.

This abstract and hypnotic motion is a meditative process to experience matter and spirit, to feel our own elevation, body and mind being detached and dissolved, and freed from the gravity law.

Our outer connexion to the cosmos is revealed by our inner connexion to ourselves.  Once we discover it, we can let it flow and let it grow to get elevated.

OOA (2019)

OOA (2019) – Mixed textiles on canvas

90 x 125 cm – silk, cotton, natural hand dyed ink, hand spun yarn and hand stitched

실크, 면, 천연 먹 염색, 손으로 뽑은 실, 손 자수

 

The spiral symbolic expresses the link between our pristine mind and the cosmos.
The pilgrimage of the spiral path was traced through medium of the needle and the thread with the energy of the hand.
In this space, there is no beginning neither end, just infinite continuity where human energy gathers.
The irregular color is given by the ink and the irregular thread’s form is twisted by the hand,
recalling the imperfection in all the relationships between chance and the causal and consequential patterns of the universal law.

 

구심으로 시작하여 나선형 길의 순례.

‘바늘과 실’ 이라는 매체와 손의 에너지를 통하여 나선형의 길을 따라갑니다.

시작도 끝도 없는 우주의 공간 안에서 인간의 한 땀 한 땀이 모아져 무한한 연속성을 표현합니다.

먹 색이 주는 중도의 색과 손으로 꼬아진 일정치 않은 실의 비 규칙적인 라인은

자연법칙에 나타나는 우연성과 인과적 필연성의 관계를 상기 시킵니다.

FERMENTATION (2016)

FERMENTATION (2016) – Mixed textiles on canvas

122 x 213 cm – ebony dyed fabric, fermented cotton

Humans have used fermentation to preserve and produce foodstuffs and beverages since the Neolithic age.
Fermentation is a traditional and fundamental aspect of Korean life and culture.

We ferment our textiles, burying them in soil for months to get forms and textures shaped by nature
then displayed on hemp canvas dyed with fermented ebony seeds.

Each piece comes with a stone, mineral counterpoint of the ephemeral nature of textile.
