Life in Painting (Look the Mysteries of Life Through the Window of Painting)

Sunyoung Lee's avatar Sunyoung Lee

The space of the canvas is considered interstitial space, where the painted forms are determined by the light and shadow of the architecture in which it exists. Bright festive colors celebrate a painting’s formal characteristics and abstract elements move in and out of the void of gestalt space and exposing structure. As a painter, to me, painting is a starting point with infinite possibilities that extend to the external world. My painting is inspired by Eastern Art and Eastern philosophy, especially Zen. Therefore, I always have pursued imperfection, void, and hidden meaning in order to open it for viewer’s story. Void space is infinite space to fill with people’s real story. Painting is an architecture which can contain the history of life. My painting’s role is an analog window to observe the truth of real life story. It makes contradiction between art and daily culture. People think painting is old medium and it’s “art for art”, but I’m seeking the possibility of new painting which can transform to a real shape with a colorful story.
