ART WORK’s explaining

My work focuses on Korean celadon and porcelain. I believe that every pot contains memories of countless moments and I incorporate this idea into my work. Korean celadon and porcelain are deeply rooted in Korea’s rich culture and history. I question myself if modern society appreciates the past as much as the present.

What we are at the present is a result of the past, however it seems as through people hastily make judgments and render definitions of what they see at the moment without reflecting on its past. This is seen even naming works of art. For example, we simply name a lotus shaped pot ‘lotus motif celadon’ because that is the image we see. What we perceive is a form but we should also be able to appreciate the time the pot endured, in other words, the past of the pot. This is my homage to time and timelessness. My works try to capture pots in a piece of glass sheet. I do not make sketches pots but rather take images of existing celadon and porcelain. By doing so, I am incorporating my ancestors’ incredible craftsmanship into my work. I carved an image of the pot created in the past in a 12 mm thick glass sheet.

The carved image you see on the glass, actually, is a reflection of light. I create form and time through light in my work. This is my effort to integrate the past and present along with the future in one piece. In this context, I recognize and cherish the true self.
