Selected artworks from the early 1990s

It was a time when I was experimenting with the notion of space called "yeobaek, the tangible unoccupied space" in Korean traditional art, calligraphic marks, and the color theories of the east and the west.

 

Light fills up the void, casting the space.

A void is given form by light.

And I perceive light as a form.
