Draw a line
Inspired by light passing through the surface of a block of glass cut from various angles and the shadow of light drawn by touching a rough surface like a stone, the theme of "Painting in Glass" was also in touch with the "Presentation in Space," which was dealt with in the first individual exhibition, even though it was a new discovery. The existence of space, in a twisted form, took the background of "space" as canvas and became a stroke or a side of glass, blending with space in its original color, and works from the three-dimensional "Stone Skin" series with various sides, as well as works that wanted to emphasize the shadow of light, flow like light in a small space limited by a lump of glass, creating abstract paintings on the surface of glass blocks such as rough patterns or white walls. For over a decade or so of transforming into a new direction in the expression of the work and exploring the materials of glass, my world of work has not changed and has been linked to the theme of "Painting expressed in glass, pictorial expression through glass." The works focus on the abstract images drawn by the prominent lines, the three dimensions created by the lines flowing through the lumpy surface like a Mobius strip, and the pictorial completion of everything that the light that passes through the combined form reflects into the mirrors used in the work.
