Artist Ahn Kwang-sik bases his work on Eastern sentiments, aiming to develop and enhance Korean imagery through white color, moon jars, and wildflowers. He seeks to naturally depict memories and reminiscences through space and emptiness. To express profound sentiment, he applies layers of thin Hanji paper, repeating the process of applying and scraping off layers about ten times. After completing this foundational work, he erases everything using a specially made stone powder solution, reminiscent of recalling memories. Then, he repeats the process of refining memories one by one through the dripping technique.


Artist's Note

I standing in the nature, never step up to it. I watch it from a distance and graze it by to be left as only light. "Sways. Suddenly. And grazes by." I search around for the border line and identification of my life and make a frame. I left the memory of the nature that the light produced on the screen. He remaining color faded to be near to achromatic color. It might be the color of Memory. It then is erased white. It may be the color I shall represent in the future. I do not also draw an object while seeing it. Depending only on the memory, I draw it as if singing. No problem if it is not so good. It is enough just to release the memory as if writing diary.
