Referential Weaving Painting
I create paintings through weaving in reference to Korean and Western modern abstract paintings.
I intend to revisit the era of Korean abstract art in 1960-70s and examine how the Western style, which was introduced without historical context, was defined in Korea, and discover the conditions to update the current issues.
Now, as we experience the past as vivid as the present through flattened space and time due to the effects of various media including smart devices, now is the time to rearrange the past with the time and experiences that were bound up too soon in rapid modernization.
Weaving is the kind of method that has a set time sequence that is incapable of rapid growth. I chose it as the method to realize the topic I am discussing, in the sense that it refuses to proceed to the next step without going through its own specific time and process. Using my own hands to weave the canvas, I dye the weft and warp threads, build patterns by inserting colored threads, or paint on the complete canvas in reference to the icons found in abstract painting such as the grid or brush stroke.
I would like to examine what was defined too soon in the past and what is meaningful in abstract painting now by incarnating in canvases imageless images of handicraft labor, weaving, which can’t skip over time.
